Marlins 4, Nationals 2: Alfredo Amezaga was amazing after an hour and a half rain delay. His two run tater tot propelled the Marlins to a series win over the Nationals and allowed Ricky Nolasco to earn his ninth win of the season. Reliever Charlie Manning took the loss in relief of Odalis Perez; Nolasco allowed just two runs on a two RBI single by Paul Lo Duca in the second and otherwise escaped unscathed.
Orioles 5, Royals 2: Daniel Cabrera needed no relief today until well after the game ended and he had consumed an entire five dollar foot long sub. Rolaids to the rescue for that cold cut concoction! Seriously folks, DanCabs pitched a complete game seven hitter to shut down the hapless Royals on 105 pitches. In the world of 'complete games', this rates about a C+, what with his wild pitch and balk. Snoozers! Aubrey Huff had a two-run ding dong in this affair.
Phillies 7, Braves 3: The Phils collected six extra base hits off Atlanta pitching and rolled to their first series win since Eisenhower rolled out the interstate system (or so). Adam Eaton was terrifically average in picking up his third win of the season, hurling five innings of five-hit, five-walk baseball. The Phillies bullpen was much better, giving up just a Chipper Jones home run in four innings of relief. Jones went 1-for-4, dipping his batting average to a Tony Gwynnesque .391.
