  • By committee? Tom Gorzelanny (+3.0%) goes 3.2 IP with 5 Ks, 2 BBs and 1 ER. Mainly he serves as the mechanism for Christian Garcia (+8.4%), Zach Duke (+7.0%), Ryan Mattheus (+6.3%), and Drew Storen (+6.3%) to all get shutdowns in relief.
  • Kneel before Zod! Adam LaRoche (+30.4%) is 2-3 with a walk and a 6th-inning, go-ahead solo shot (+18.5%).
  • CHOMP! Roger Bernadina (+13.6%) is 1-2 with a walk and a game-tying RBI single (+13.3%).
