Game Notes: The pitching combo of Alfredo Simon, A.J. Morris, and Daniel Wright did much better than last time out.

In the last outing, each of the three were smacked around like a pinata. On Wednesday night, they worked 7.2 innings with nine hits and only two runs.

Simon stretched to two innings in his rehab assignment, while Morris worked one inning again in his. Wright tossed 4.2 innings, and allowed six hits, which has been an issue for him of late.

Jesse Winker added a hit and run in the contest. He is now hitting .371 in his 10 games in August.

Beau Amaral played his best offensive game since his promotion to Triple-A, with three hits. Amaral has hit in five games in a row, and in eight of the last nine games at the level though.

Jose Peraza picked up a single, but is just 2-for-15 in his last four games.
