Some offense supporting strong starting pitching usually makes for a winner, and David Freese made sure of that this afternoon.
Freese went 2 for 4 with a home run, a double, and 3 RBIs. Carlos Beltran was 1 for 3 with an RBI double. Matt Holliday, though, returned to his slump, going 0 for 4. Freese’s homer and Beltran’s double both came in the 6th, which ended starter Chris Volstad’s game.
Lance Lynn pitched 8 innings, giving up 6 hits and 1 earned run, with 7 Ks.
Back home to face the Brewers and the Bucs.
