“For the most part, it hadn’t been sloppy baseball that’s getting us, it’s been a tough stretch,” said third baseman Chase Headley. “We got to find a way to score more runs than them, but it’s not like we’re playing bad baseball.” [Collier]

Michael Cuddyer hit the ball in the perfect spot leaving Chase Headley with a desperate attempt to back door the runner at second base. Headley plunked the ump in the rear. It was funny.

Edinson Volquez tries to do a sweet little shovel pass to Rene Rivera on a safety squeeze. It was terrible.
