Quote of the Day
Robin commenting on Adam Dunn going to the opposite field more often, resulting in considerably more success at the plate (via mlb.com).
“…It’s helped him. He’s knocking in some big runs for us going the other way. Now you’re starting to see teams straighten back up on him, which allows him to really get that ball back in the hole.”
Play of the Day
Andre Rienzo pitched a strong six innings, allowing just one earned run and four hits in the 4-3 loss to the Twins. Paulie singled, doubled and drove in a run.
