SBNation Coverage

Whatever Casey McGehee has been doing lately, hopefully he'll keep it up the next few years.  The man fell just a triple shy of the cycle as he went 4-4 today while scoring three runs and driving in three.  His perfect day now puts him at nine hits in nine consecutive at-bats.  Pags informed us in the comments section of the game thread that the MLB record for hits in consecutive at-bats is 12, so tomorrows game will hopefully contain some excitement in that regard. 

Randy Wolf had onebadinningitis today, otherwise he pitched fairly well.  He gave up 4 runs in the fourth inning, including a three run homer to Stephen Drew.  John Axford came in for a 1.2 inning save, but got into some trouble in the ninth inning.  He loaded the bases with just one out, but induced a game ending double play for his seventeenth save.
