Flashing leather: 2BJosh Harrison made a fantastic defensive play in the sixth, running all out and making a diving grab of Kevin Youkillis' blooper in shallow CF.

Stock down: LHP Mike Zagurski has given up costly homers in back-to-back outings. Sunday, he served up Melky Mesa's grand slam. Thursday, he yielded a game-losing solo shot against the Phillies.
