Billings goes up 2-0 in the fifth on a single by Robert Ramirez and a bunch of wild pitches.

More important was Sal Romano's auspicious debut: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, O BB, 3 K. Two of the three hits were to Socrates Brito. I boldly predict that if he continues to give up the majority of his hits to guys named Socrates, he'll have a pretty nice career.

Now, Dan Langfield makes his debut.
