Ricky Nolasco (4-5) earned the win after giving up four runs on six hits with seven strikeouts in seven innings of work.

Starter Marco Estrada did not factor in the decision after giving up four runs on six hits with three walks across six frames. Rob Wooten (1-3) was tagged with the loss after giving up a run in the seventh.
