Everybody got into the act. Rafael Furcal went 4 for 5. Carlos Beltran hit a 2-run homer. Tyler Greene homered for only the 5th time in his career. Even starter Jaime Garcia tripled in 2 runs.
The defense, which almost blew the game last night, turned four double plays.
Garcia wasn’t outstanding, but he was good enough. 7 innings, 1 earned run, 7 hits, 3 Ks and 3 walks.
