AT THE PLATE: Hank Conger hit a solo home run, a double and a single, Peter Bourjos had a solo homer and a double, and Chris Pettit, who is making a strong push for a reserve outfield spot, had a two-run double and an RBI single. Minor league outfielder Clay Fuller crushed a grand slam to left in the eighth.
ON THE MOUND: Jason Bulger's chances of making the team are fading, as are Francisco Rodriguez's. Bulger loaded the bases in the seventh when he walked two and hit a batter, but he escaped the jam by striking out Mike Aviles. Rodriguez, who gave up a three-run homer to the Cubs' Carlos Pena on Monday, gave up three runs and three hits, including Billy Butler's homer, in the eighth.
