Juan Minaya blew the lead, but won the game as he gave up two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two. Ryan Webb and Brad Goldberg each threw one-hit, scoreless innings.
Adam Engel and Eddy Alvarez, two players that struggled mightily to begin the year but have since recovered, had stellar games. Engel went 4-5 with two doubles, two RBIs and his 29th stolen base. Alvarez was 2-4 with a double, three RBIs and a walk. Other standouts included Keon Barnum and Joey DeMichele, who each notched a single and a double.
