Kasey Kiker (3.25 ERA/.235 BAA) was phenomenal on Tuesday, allowing only an unearned run in seven frames.

Leadoff man Craig Gentry raised his average to .300 with three singles in five at-bats.

Justin Smoak returned to the lineup, singling twice in three official at-bats.

John Whittleman was 1-for-2 with a pair of walks.
