• There was an umpire switch in mid-game on Wednesday. Home-plate umpire (and crew chief) Jerry Layne exited the game in the top of the fourth inning, most likely due to getting hit on his left hand by a foul ball off the bat of Derek Norris in the third inning. Second-base umpire Mike Estabrook moved behind the plate for the top of the fourth and a three-man crew was used for the rest of the game.
