- Maier had a good game. 3-4 with 2 RBIs and nice catch in CF
- Collins is back to throwing a bunch of balls. He only threw 1 first strike pitch to the 6 batters he faced.
- Sanchez was his normal self, crap. 4.2 innings. 115 pitches. 7 walks. 1 HBP. All 4 of his earned runs were from a batter he walked or hit. 11 (of 25) on first strike pitches. It is like Kyle Davies, but worse.
- Ned Yost was himself also. Sanchez walks the first batter in the 5th on 4 pitches. Then he strikes out Choo on 6 pitches. Sanchez walks another batter. Nothing from Ned. Sanchez walks another batter. Still nothing from Ned. Sacrifice Fly. Ned continues to watch Sanchez flail. Double and 2 runs. Now it is time to pull Sanchez, about 3 batters too late.
