  • No decisions: Livan Hernandez (+12.7%) goes 7 IP with 6 Ks and 2 ER, while John Lannan (-4.8%) gives up 3 ER in 7 IP with 1(one) strikeout.
  • Exemplary/not so much: Drew Storen (+15.6%) allows a hit but throws a scoreless 9th to save game 2.  Sean Burnett (-34.7%) gives up back-to-back solo shots to blow game 1.
  • Heroes: Rick Ankiel (+27.1%) went 2-2 with a game-tying, pinch-hit bomb in game 1 (+24.6%).  Brian Bixler made the most of a PR appearance, stealing third and scoring the game-tying run on a bad throw in game 2 (+24.6%), while Ivan Rodriguez showed his veteran pluck with a game-winning, pinch-hit, RBI single (+28.9%).
