Good win. Lots of love to go around. Special kudos to oru 3-4-5 guys who combined for 10-13 with 4 runs and 5 RBI.

WP: Grilli. Funny how things work. He blows the save but gets the win.
HOLD: Meek
SAVE: Cruz

Star #3 Neil Walker is finally coming on. He went 3-5 with a run and an RBI.

Star # 2 Cutch went 4-5 with an RBI and 2 runs. Drove in the game winner with 2 outs in the 9th. Considered him for the #1 star but I think all in all, GJ deserved it more.

Star #1 Garrett Jones...was key tonight. He went 3-4 with a double and a HR, a run and 3 RBI. He came through in the clutch every time. Even his out should have been a hit, but Walker got forced at second when he did not know if the ball was going to drop in RF or not.

Lots of Honorable Mentions: Presley had only one hit, but it was a big infield hit to get the ball rolling with 2 outs in the 9th. McGehee continues to impress. Great pickup for NH. He had just one at bat, but it was a big one with 2 outs in the 9th to put Presley in scoring position. Hughes, thrust into action in just the second inning, went 2 2/3 innings with just one run. Watson went 2 1/3 scoreless after that. Meek went one scoreless. Cruz earned his first Bucco save.

Blown Save: Grilli

Agreed except IMO I'd switch Cutch and G.I.

I gave that a lot of thougth...but ultimately, I think Jones at bats were more "clutch" and he came through each time. Could have gone either way@!

Yes he did, but without GJs three PRIOR clutch hits, Cutch would not have been in that situation!
