What can you say about a stinker like that? Edwin Jackson was basically Edwin Jackson, right down to the part where he puts guys on and then departs in the 6th.* The bullpen didn’t fare much better, and the offense was thin.

*(He was apparently dealing with a hand cramp that inning, and it did genuinely look like something was off. Still.)

The highlight of the game was Eddie Vedder singing the Seventh Inning Stretch, which pretty much says everything you need to know about this one.
