Waddell didn’t make it out of the 2nd inning giving up 5 runs and 4 walks while recording no strikeouts. He was pulled and replaced by Casey Sadler. Sadler gave up 2 runs over 4.1 innings before being replaced by Damien Magnifico who allowed another 3 runs in 2 innings. Erich Weiss hit his first homerun of the season and Pablo Reyes hit his 2nd homer of the year. Reyes is a name to keep an eye given his respectable hitting line and positional versatility.
