It was a nail-biting finish as the basic walk was looking like it was going to cause plenty of headaches today. Losing Erik in the second inning was when I actually began to worry. I love the never give up attitude this team has this year, there were not going down with out a fight. Jose Abru hit his first grand slam of his career.

In the office tomorrow is John Danks

See you at The Cell
