Eric Stults tossed a gem tonight, giving up just a single unearned run on 2 hits and 4 walks in 6.1 innings. And thus ends what needs to be said about the lefty tonight, because he could have completely imploded tonight and still won, thanks to an incredible 20-hit game. Tommy Medica led the way, going 5-for-5 with a pair of home runs, including a 438-foot monster shot to left field in the bottom of the third inning. Of course, it wasn't just the rookie dreamboat getting us all hot and bothered. Everth Cabrera went 4-for-5 and Chris Nelson went 3-for-5. That's a dozen hits from just a third of the lineup. Every single spot in the lineup had at least one hit. Even Jeff Francoeur got in on the action, hitting the bloopiest bloop to have ever blooped in the second inning. There's really no way to do this game justice with words. If you were unfortunate enough to miss it, do yourself a favor and watch the highlights.

Ian Kennedy takes the mound tomorrow at 5:40 PM. It's Scripps Hospital night at the ballpark, so if you're going, be prepared for a huge crowd.
