Brandon Beachy entered the fourth having retired the minimum, no hits or walks and four strikeouts. But after a two-out double to Aubrey Huff, Posey crushed a hanging changeup to left field to tie it.
Despite entering the fourth with a perfect game, Beachy's command hasn't been perfect. He has left a few balls up like the Posey pitch and has received some luck, especially on fly balls. He does have six strikeouts through five innings.
Following a leadoff walk by Martin Prado and Jason Heyward double to put both in scoring position in the first inning, Chipper plated both with a double down the left field line. However, despite no outs in the inning, Chipper was stranded on second.
Jonathan Sanchez has walked three in five innings but only two runs on two hits with five strikeouts. The walks come with the strikeout ability for Sanchez, and he's showing it again today. It has also resulted in a high pitch count, which sits at 86 through five.
