- R.A. Dickey went six innings, giving up five runs on six hits, while striking out one and walking one. Dickey struggled early, but eventually went on to retire 11 in a row before he left in the sixth inning.
- This team was just an overall mess tonight. The big base running snafu of the night was with Ruben Tejada tagging from third base, attempting to score on a shallow fly ball to left field. Tejada did not slide into home plate and was called out. Call it inexperience. Call it a mistake made by a young player. I call it a dumb play. This is not a mistake you make because you are young. You learn to slide on these plays in Little League.
- Then there was the ninth inning. What a disaster. Bobby Parnell came into pitch the ninth, and went on to allow three runs to score. On a ground ball to first base, Parnell missed the bag. He was then unable to pick-off Jesus Guzman at third base. That would come back to bite him, because few batters later, Guzman stole home.
- There were some highlights. Josh Thole was 4-5 at the plate with two runs scored.
- In the fifth inning, David Wright tied Ed Kranepool for the franchise record of 2,047 total bases.
- Angel Pagan left the game in the fourth inning with lower back spasms.
