  • Randy Wolf allows one earned run over six innings with five Ks, four hits and two walks


  • Jason Kendall bats ninth behind David Bush
  • Carlos Marmol enters the game in the 7th inning - he pitched well, but entering the game in the 7th inning isn't a good way to earn saves
  • David Bush walks five over 5.1 innings. He never walked more than three batters in a start in all of 2007. At least he got to bat eighth!


  • Chris B. Young must own Johnny Cueto in the DBacks roto league, he wore the golden sombrero with four Ks in four ABs
  • Mike Hampton is Mr. Glass from the movie Unbreakable
