Ryan Jackson contributes a sac fly his 23rd RBI of the season.
Oscar Taveras was 3-4 with an RBI double. The organization continues to ease him back into the lineup giving him the day-off every other day which isn't a bad idea given high-ankle sprains can nag on for an extended period of time.
Boone Whiting had a rough outing. He gave up 9 hits on 6 earned runs didn't walk batter and struck out 6 in 4 1/3 innings.
Eric Fornataro continues to obliterated he gave up 5 hits on 4 earned runs in only 1 2/3 innings his ERA is now up to 7.71. Perhaps a change of scenery with demotion to Springfield would do him swell.

James Ramsey was 1-4 with a solo homer. His 6th at Springfield. Ramsey has homer 4 times in his last 10 games.

Fast rising lefty Tim Cooney in 6 2/3 innings gave up 8 hits on 4 runs (3 earned) walked 1 and struck out 3.
