Trayvon Robinson led off the first inning with a bunt single, advanced to second on a base hit by Aharon Eggleston and scored on an RBI single by Bryan LaHair. Eggleston scored on an RBI groundout by Brad Snyder later in the inning to take a 2-0 lead.

“I knew I was going to be at the top of the lineup, like [Brett] Jodie said when I was coming in here. I knew the responsibility that if I’m not on the base paths, I’m not helping,” said Robinson.
