I don't have time for a long recap, but here are some highlights.

  • Juan Francisco hit a home run over the moon deck and out of the stadium.  It hit a tree outside, or it might have joined Adam Dunn's shot as the only home run into another state.  El Nino Destructor's homer was estimated to have gone 502 feet, the second longest at GABP since Dunn's Ol' Kentucky Homer.
  • Devin Mesoraco hit his first major league home run.  The assault on Bonds's record begins now!  Or at least Bench's.
  • Brandon Phillips responded well to his day off with two home runs.
  • Dontrelle Willis once again did not win.  Of course, this time he pitched craptacularly enough to deserve the loss.
  • The Cubs only hit three homers.  Slackers.
