A lot of good things happening in this one.

Matt Hague, who Clint Hurdle has aptly named “The Hit Collector,” went 3 for 4 with a 2-run homer [video] off Kevin Gregg in the 3rd inning.

Alex Presley went 3 for 3 with a triple [video], 2 RBI, and 2 runs scored. Looked pretty good. He hit everything pretty hard and his speed played a big role on a few plays.

Starling Marte got the start in RF. He was 3 for 3 with a stolen base and 2 runs scored. He did, however, make one of the worst errors I’ve ever seen on a routine fly ball that he just simply missed. I don’t really know how to describe it because it was so odd.
