I was doing my nephew’s taxes and gave him 3 conditions to do so: 1) he had to buy me a pepperoni and sausage pizza (of which I gave pieces to his schnoodle, who loved the pep and sausage.

Besides the “Big 3″, Dellin Betances (1 2/3) and Cesar Cabral (1 1/3) completed the shutout.

Brian McCann doubled and walked twice.
