Bush struck out a career high 13 batters and gave up just one run and four hits in 8 innings of work to improve his record to 5-8 on the season. Ned Yost sent Carlos Villanueva to the mound in the 9th inning to finish off the blowout.
Ryan Braun drove in 3 runs while Corey Hart and JJ Hardy went deep. A six run fourth inning busted open a 1-1 game and ran stater Jorge de la Rosa from the game.
