The seventh-inning disaster began when Webb gave up back-to-back singles in the seventh and threw wild to first on a sacrifice bunt by Brian McFall, allowing two runs to score and McFall to reach third. A a sacrifice fly to center made it 3-1 and cleared the bases. After Eddie Solis reached on an error at third base, reliever J.R. Pickens replaced Webb and gave up a double to make it 4-1.
