Carson Fulmer continued his hot streak, throwing six shutout innings in the win. Fulmer allowed seven hits and two walks, but did strike out five. Fulmer has gone 2-0 in his last three starts and only allowed one run, so he could be in line to start taking some of James Shields‘ starts if the veteran righty doesn’t turn it around. Brad Goldberg got the save in the shortened first game of the double header.
On offense, Jason Coats led the way by going 2-3 with a double and two RBIs. Nicky Delmonico had the other RBI despite going 0-3. Slade Heathcott was 2-3 with a double and Jake Peter was 2-3 with a run scored.
