Hollins, who escaped a 1st-and-3rd jam with one out in the 8th, gave up two singles and a walk to load the bases, hit a batter to send in the tying run, then gave up a third single to take the blown-save-loss. Starter Austin Voth got the no-decision for his five innings of two-hit, no-walk ball with six strikeouts.
