I had a draft of this all typed up, and then it got lost. So here's the abbreviated version.
Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game
Brandon Phillips. A walkoff home run earns this spot, particularly when it's Phillips against the Cardinals. Honorable mentions go to Chris Heisey (two home runs) and Johnny Cueto (seven innings, only two earned runs allowed).
- Brandon Phillips hit a two run homer with two outs in the ninth inning.
- Chris Heisey is, according to espn.com, the third player this season to hit a home run and rob another batter of a homer. The other two are Jose Bautista and Luke Scott. Meanwhile, Albert Pujols is only the second player to hit a home run, and have a home run stolen. The other was Matt Holliday (Luke Scott's home run-denying catch).
- Zack Cozart has played five games and hit safely in all of them.
- Scott Rolen hit the 500th double of his career.
