Ioba Chamberlain was brought in to protect a five-run deficit again as he did for an inning last night. Phil Hughes was quite bad, allowing 10 hits in four-plus innings. Most of those weren't bleeders either. Nelson Cruz came within less than two feet of a home run to center, leading off the fifth. Ian Kinsler drilled a triple to the rightfield corner and it's 6-1.
Chamberlain nearly stranded Kinsler at third, having struck out David Murphy and Bengie Molina and having two strikes on Mitch Moreland. But Moreland bounced one through the left side and it's 7-1.
