Dioner Navarro singled to left off Jeremy Guthrie, bringing Ben Zobrist to the plate.

Luke Scott got a late jump on Zobrist’s sinking liner, but he made a lunging catch for the second out. B.J. Upton flied to right, stranding Navarro at first.

Guthrie threw 17 pitches, 13 for strikes. We’ll see him again in the second inning.
