Justin Turner, Carlos Beltran, Angel Pagan, and Ruben Tejada all had multi-hit games. Dan Murphy, Angel Pagan, Jason Pridie, and Ruben Tejada all chipped in a RBI each. Despite struggling in his last few outings, Francisco Rodriguez closed the door on the Brew Crew with a scoreless 1.3 performance for his eighteenth save.
