Tonight's game story: FAIL!
Robbed: Edwin Jackson (-24.4% pitching, +11.5% hitting) does not benefit from accurate safe/out calls at first, giving up 4 R over 5.1 IP on 7 Ks and 1 BB. He does benefit from a two-run circus play on a second-inning single (+12.8%).
- Promising: Adam LaRoche (+14.9%) hits a first-inning, two-run shot for the early lead (+20.0%).
- Goat, part 1: Ryan Mattheus (-33.4%) loads the bases with a single and two walks, then forces in the go-behind run with a HBP (-15.6%) in the 8th.
- Thief: Eury Perez makes the most of a PR appearance in the 9th, swiping second and taking third on an error with one out (+16.2%).
- Goat(s), part 2: Steve Lombardozzi (-19.7%) Ks with one out and the tying run on 3rd in the 9th inning (-19.8%). Tyler Moore has a PH K to end the 9th (-11.7%)
