Top 6: Downs struck out swinging against Garza
Top 8: Downs struck out swinging against Jeff Samardzija
Final Line: 0-for-4, 4 K
Notes: Downs, who made the most of increased playing time in June, is now three for his last 25 and hitting .120 in July. If his golden sombrero indicated one thing, it’s that Downs hasn’t quite figured out how to barrel-up a quality slider.
