Fifth Inning


Drew Hutchison relieved Jake Arrieta, and Derek Dietrich greeted him by putting the first pitch into right field for a leadoff single.

Miguel Rojas took his first pitch on the inside part of the plate for strike one. Hutchison, appearing unnerved by Dietrich standing off first, threw ball one and ball two outside. Rojas put the next pitch right of second base, where Santana collected it for a 4-6-3 double play.

Starlin Castro took ball one outside to open his two-out plate appearance. Castro, looking for a hit in his ninth game in a row, looked at strike one then fouled off strike two down the third base line. Ball two, well outside, met Castro with a check swing. The 2-2 pitch was also sent to second base, for an easy 4-3 putout.


Chris O’Grady took over for Richards in the fifth, and came on to face Carlos Santana. Santana put the first pitch high in the air and into left field, where Dietrich collected it for an easy out.

Odubel Herrera up next, sent the next pitch high in the air and again to left field, where Dietrich again collected it for an easy out. Two pitches, two outs. That’s efficiency.

O’Grady made pitch one low for a ball to Rhys Hoskins, then put ball two low and inside. Ball three was low and outside. Ball four was high and in the zone, but a ball was called and first base was awarded.

Williams fouled off pitch one of his at bat against O’Grady, then laid off one outside for ball one and a low one for ball two. Williams hit the next one to straight center field, where Lewis Brinson caught it harmlessly for the third out.
