It's the first time in his career.  Zach Phillips gave up the last two.  He also doubled. A new AL record of 18 total bases. Nelson Cruz homered. A single after Endy Chavez drops a fly foul knocks in a run for Texas.

    Jake Arrieta pitches 6 and a third innings.

    Nick Markakis hit a single that knocked in J.J. Hardy. Koji's side burns are completely epic. He pitched great too. Andino got a hit off him. Hardy had a double and a homer. Nick put one on the flag court.

    Several hits in the eighth and the ninth.
