- Tough luck (again): John Lannan (+3.8%) is steady enough through 6 IP, giving up 2 ER with 4 Ks and 3 BBs, although he can only blame himself for giving up a tying run on a WP (-15.9%).
- Thirty-plus! Michael Morse (+1.2%) belts a game-tying solo shot in the 5th (+14.0%).
- Predictable: Doug Slaten (-36.2%) gets two outs into the ninth, almost giving up a game-losing dinger before... giving up a game-losing dinger (-46.4%).
- Sprinting = winning: Todd Coffey (+10.7%) works around a leadoff hit to keep the game tied in a scoreless inning of relief work.
Game 160: You just KNEW Slaten would blow it.
