- Unlikely h3r0: Miguel Batista (+0.207) goes 1.1 IP, only allowing one inherited runner to score after coming into a two RISP jam.
- Unlikely g0at: Tyler Clippard (-0.248) finally lets a flyball get out of the yard, losing the lead on a two-run homer in the 7th (-0.375).
- Usual suspect: Josh Willingham (+0.289) is 2-4 with 2 RBI on an HR (+0.215) and a triple (+0.141).
- Not-awful homecoming: Matt Chico (-0.010) goes 5 IP with 2 ER, 3 K and no walks.
