Jose Reyes had a four-hit night including three doubles and two RBI, while Giancarlo Stanton hit two solo home runs as part of his 4-RBI outburst. Carlos Lee tacked on three hits including two RBI as well.

John Buck also left the building for his 10th homer of the year. The catcher also scored three runs and had three singles.
