Hero: Matt Adams. Two hits, both for extra bases, and four RBI. Good job, Big Fill In The Blank.
Goat: Oscar Taveras. Glad he got the start, but 0-4 with four left on gets him listed here. Hopefully it won’t be a week before he can redeem himself.
Notes: Wasn’t a dominant Shelby Miller but it was better than we’ve seen in a while. No walks was very nice. Nice debut for AJ Pierzynski, which makes John Mozeliak look good for at least one day.
