Starter Greg Ross did his part with three runs let in on seven hits and three walks over seven innings and an RBI single at the plate. Neal Cotts took the loss with an assist from Rafael Martin, who let in the gamewinner with a single allowed to the first and only batter he faced. Clint Robinson went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI while Andrew Stevenson got the sole hit by the three Chiefs batters under the age of 30. Roster move: LHP Matt Grace optioned from Washington.

The save went to Wander Suero, who worked around two walks in the 9th, while R.C. Orlan and Andrew Robinson both turned in a goose egg to earn a hold. Yadiel Hernandez’s 6th-inning pinch-hit single plated Alec Keller for the game’s only run. Roster move: OF Chris Heisey assigned from Washington for MLB rehab.
