1) With the game tied at two in the bottom of the eighth, the combination of Daniel Zamora and Jeurys Familia was unable to keep the score even. Zamora started the inning, allowed a single to Bryce Harper and was replaced by Familia. The right-hander ended up loading the bases for Scott Kingery, who delivered a bases-clearing double to provide the difference in the score.
