Notes:

  • Hopefully, today’s outing means Dickey is back to his old self. He has had a very rough streak of starts and has faltered after an amazing first half. He had decent command today, which was a good sign. Let’s hope he can continue this in his next start.
  • Scott Hairston had a big game, going 2-for-5 with two RBI.
  • Daniel Murphy's hot streak continued today. He went 2-for-5 with an RBI.
  • Bobby Parnell closed out Arizona in the ninth in a non-save opportunity. He walked a batter and struck out two.
