He struck out and walked one while permitting a hit.

Littell went seven strong innings, tying his season high in strikeouts with eight. He permitted one run on five scattered hits and a walk. Littell has now pitched seven innings or more in three straight starts. Trey Amburgey slugged his fifth home run of the year on a two-run shot to right-center field in the bottom of the fourth. Nick Solak tripled home two, and came around on the second run-scoring wild pitch of the game in the eighth.
