In the fourth and fifth innings, he put runners on but kept the game scoreless, and he took the mound in the sixth inning with a big 4-5 lead in the relief of the batting lineup, but he was replaced with the winning pitcher's rights when he was hit by a timely two-base hit to left field from first base with one out.
