Chad Rogers (51.1) . . 1.93
Armando Galarraga (44) . . . 2.66
Ryan Dennick (51) . . . 2.82
Greg Reynolds (56.1) . . . 2.88
Tim Crabbe (50) . . . 2.88
Carlos Contreras (47.0) . . . 3.23*
Drew Cisco (55.2) . . . 3.40
Josh Smith (46.2) . . . 3.66
Sal Romano (41.1) . . . 3.70
Chad Reineke (48.2) . . . 3.88
Robert Stephenson (47) . . . 4.02
* Contreras is pitching in Bakersfield. You get extra credit for that.
Stephenson's six strong last night put him at 3.74.
Also, Michael Dennhardt got his second start of the season, and his five innings leave him with 32 for the season. His ERA is 2.81.
