Once again, the bullpen came to the rescue as well. Andrew Miller got the win with an inning and two-thirds of scoreless work, but it was really Vicente Padilla ('The Fearless One') who put out a raging fire in the 8th (second and third, one out). Alfredo Aceves pitched a solid ninth for his tenth save. So, except for Buchholz, this was a true team victory. Not only did the Carmine Hose beat the first place team in our division, but they also caught the Evil Ones and reached .500.
