Detwiler allows another leadoff runner, walking Pete Kozma, but yet again escapes unscathed. Adam LaRoche scooped up the sacrifice bunt from pticher Kyle Lohse and nabbed the lead runner at second base. Then, Detwiler struck out Jon Jay with a 92 mph sinker and got Carlos Beltran to roll over a sinker to Ryan Zimmerman for a force out at second base.

The score remains tied, 1-1, in the fifth.
