In Philadelphia Tuesday, Hunter Pence's 10th inning walk off home run gave the Phillies a 4-3 win over Houston, and gave Jake Diekman his first major league win. "Diek" faced 4 hitters, first getting out of a jam that Chad Qualls got into, and then posting a scoreless 10th, fanning 3 for his historic win.
It was the 18th win in the majors for former Claws this year.
In Atlanta, Michael Bourn (.340) was 3 for 5, and scored 2 runs for the Braves in their 6-2 win over the Reds...........Lou Marson's struggles continue. Lou was 0 for 4 in Cleveland's 5-0 win in Minnesota.......In St. Louis, Adrian Cardenas had a pinch at bat (he flew out) for the Cubs in their 7-6 loss to the Cards...........In San Francisco, Josh Outman allowed 3 runs on 2 walks and 1 hit in 1 inning of work for the Rockies in Colorado's 5-4 win over the Giants.
