Connor Brogdon ( FB 95-97 ) yielded 6 runs on 5 hits and a walk in 2/3 IP. Just didn’t have command this evening ... his first bad outing in forever.

Second Baseman Brad Miller made a diving stop on a hard hit grounder in the eighth inning and threw to second base for the second out of the inning.


Notes :


Jean Segura left the game in the second inning after suffering a right quad strain running to first base on a ground ball he hit. He will be further evaluated tomorrow.


Record is now 8-9
