Post-Game Notes: Matt Carson’s hitting streak ended, while Colin Curtis extended his. Cody Ehlers hit a two-run home run, while Chase Wright turned in seven solid innings.
Jose Tabata…absent from the lineup. Whatever spin they’re trying to put on it, keep in mind Tony Franklin said that Tabata would be back in the lineup today, and that didn’t exactly happen. Hard to argue with the fact that — temper tantrum or not — he needed to be sat down for some time.
