Key Moment In The Game: In my opinion the key moment was in the bottom of the 7th inning when Felipe Lopez hit a grand slam home run off Raul Valdes. I’m sure Jerry Manuel will be second guessed for taking Oliver Perez out of the game. I myself would have left Perez in the game but I can’t kill Manuel for this. The bullpen has to come in, throw strikes and get outs. They didn’t do either tonight.
Game Ball: Oliver Perez: 6.1 IP | 4 H | 4 SO | 1 ER.
