Gary Sheffield's third-inning grand slam proved to be the difference as Jeremy Bonderman delivered seven solid innings and picked up his 10th victory of the season. Shawn Casey added a solo shot in the seventh, and Todd Jones snagged his 23rd save.
Jarrod Washburn was solid for much of his six innings, but a third-inning jam led to a grand slam that proved to be the difference. Jose Guillen hit a solo shot in the second, and Adrian Beltre went deep in the seventh, but the offense was unable to mount a rally.
