Crawford scored and Montero was charged with an error.
Hernandez tried to sacrifice the runners up with a bunt, but it went far to the side of Cahill. Originally the umpires ruled Cahill's throw to first was in time, but Mattingly challenged that call and won too.

Hernandez allowed three runs and six hits while walking two and striking out three in his six innings.
