News: Volquez (11-7), who won for the seventh time in eight decisions Saturday, allowed two runs on 11 hits and two walks in 5.2 innings. He struck out three batters. Impact: Despite allowing a liberal number of hits, Volquez pitched effectively in key spots. He retired both Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez with the bases loaded in the fourth inning. The righty threw 104 pitches (including 69 for strikes). His leash might have been shorter if the Bucs hadn't held a six-run lead during the last two innings he pitched, but the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent kept the Brewers in check.(RotoWire, )
