Nick Kingham went the next six and a third, giving up six hits and three walks, and striking out four. Nate Baker got the last two outs. Alex Dickerson kept hitting, going 2-4 with his twelfth HR. Justin Howard went 2-3 and is now hitting .329 with a .436 OBP, although with little power. Gregory Polanco went 0-3 and has dropped to .266.
