  1. The most critical, and perhaps, the most exciting game last night was the Cardinals heart-thumping win over the Pirates. Adron Chambers hit a walkoff single h in the 14th inning for his first RBI of the season. It was the Pirates fourth straight loss as the Cards pulled within two games of the NL Central leaders.
  2. The biggest extra-inning hitting hero last night was undoubtedly NL MVP candidate Diamondback Paul Goldschmidt who led off the 9th with a tying home run and then hit the first pitch of the 11th inning for a walkoff home run to enable Arizona to pick up their second straight walk-off victory over the Orioles.
  3. The best pitched extra-inning game last night was in Kansas City where Jose Fernandez and Bruce Chen each allowed just three hits as they struck out six in seven scoreless innings. Christian Yelich singled home the go-ahead run with one out in the 10th inning, giving the Marlins a 1-0 victory.
  4. The most predictable outcome in an extra-inning game was in Toronto where Shane Victorino hit a two-run go-ahead single in the 11th and the Red Sox won for the 19th time in 72 victories in their final at-bat. It was the 28th comeback win of the year for the Red Sox.
  5. Chicago gets the split-personality extra-inning experience of the night. The White Sox topped the Tigers on Alejandro De Aza‘s walkoff single with the sacks filled in the 11th inning. Avisail Garcia who had two hits and two RBI, scored the winning run, his second run scored of the night, against the team that dealt him at trade deadline in the Jake Peavy deal.
  6. Things were not as good on the North Side, where the Reds took 11 innings to beat the Cubs on Shin-Soo Choo‘s two-run single in the 11th inning.
