I watched this game.

Hendry Mendez had two hits - an RBI single and a triple off the right center field fence.  Aidan Miller hit a two run home run and Eduardo Tait had an RBI single to left field.  Bryson Ware stroked two singles - good looking hitter.


Mendez made a nice running catch in right field on a slicing line drive.
