Another Loss, This Time 7-2

W – Scott Baker (8-9)     L – Brian Matusz (3-11)

We didn’t really do anything on offense last night. Luke Scott continued his hot streak with another two hits including a two run homer to account for all of our runs. He should’ve had another one but Denard Span robbed him, leaping over the fence. Felix Pie doubled, Brian Roberts, Miguel Tejada, and Ty Wiggington singled, and Adam Jones walked twice. We were 0-5 with runners in scoring position. Brian Matusz got out of some jams but not enough to avoid the loss. He pitched 5 innings allowing 3 runs on 6 hits and 3 walks with 5 strikeouts. Matt Albers, Michael Gonzalez, and Jason Berken combined to pitch the last 4 innings allowing four more runs to score. Berken has been struggling lately after three months of great pitching.

Player of the game: Luke Scott – 2-4, R, 2 RBI, HR (16) (.291 AVG)

The series comes to a close today with Jake Arrieta (3-2, 4.87) matching up against Kevin Slowey (8-5, 4.94).
