Extra Innings –

- Dugan had played CF for 7 innings.
- Seranthony Dominguez pitched the final 2 innings. His breaking ball had good movement. I heard the coaches remark that he was spotting it well.
- Devin Lohman played 9 innings at first base. Hmmmm. He turned a nice 3-6-3 double play.
- I saw Pujols bat once. He hit a soft, first-pitch fly ball to center with runners on second and third and two out.
- Jesus Posso crushed a game-tying, solo home run to left.
