It was a rough night for Bats starter Josh Smith. After getting the first out of the game he gave up a HBP, single, single, and walk. All of this was followed by a Chris "Chicken" Parmelee grand slam. Smith gave up another run in the second, and the Bats replaced him with Layne Somsen "that I used to know" to start the third. Smith's line looked a little like this: 2 IP, 6 H, 6 ER, 2 BB, 1 SO. Samson gave up two on a 4th inning homer to Nick Swisher. Stephen "Johnson and" Johnson gave up Parmelee's second homer of the night in the 5th. Dayan "and day out" Diaz and Chad "Mr." Rogers did pitch scoreless innings.
On offense the Bats only mustered one run and four hits. Seth Mejias- "where you" Brean had the lone RBI on the night. Hernan Iribarren, Steve "Alka" Selsky, and Juan Perez contributed the other hits.
