- Expected heros: Adam LaRoche (+15.8%) is 2-5 with a first-inning solo shot (+10.8%). Wilson Ramos (+12.2%) hits the go-ahead-for-good solo bomb in the 4th (+14.4%).
- Unexpected save: Ross Detwiler (+6.5% pitching, +0.1% hitting) throws 3 scoreless innings in relief for a shutdown. He also draws a walk and comes around to score.
