Top 6, Kinsler singles again for a 6-0 lead.

Game 4: Moore @ Kuhl
Both starters GREAT as Moore allows only 2 hits and KUHL (?) scatters 6 hits in 6 innings for a scoreless duel.
Top 7, McCann gives the Blazers the lead with a PH HR. 1-0 Blazers.
Bottom 8, Cozart with an RBI single and it’s a tie ball game.
Top 11, after a Freeman triple, Saunders reaches on an IF single and a 2-1 lead.
With Kimbrel tired, Cervenka comes on and gets a 1-2-3 inning for his first save of the year and a Blazer sweep.
WP Devenski (2-0)
LP Wilson (2-1)
S Cervenka (1)
Blazers are 14-2 on the season, 10-0 on the road, 6-0 in 1 run games, and 4-0 in extras. Devenski is WAY overused and we will have to rely on other pitchers going forward,.
