Last Night’s Highlights
Dioner Navarro hit a two-run homer (click on link below) and Avi Garcia collected a pair of singles and an RBI in the 5-3 home loss to the Phillies in the finale of the two-game series. Jose Abreu singled to extend his on-base streak and continued his hot hitting in the month of August (see Quotes of the Day for details).
And for the defense, a couple of terrific plays–one by Todd Frazier, another by Adam Eaton.
