Ramirez accounted for four of his RBIs with a grand slam. His game-winner Wednesday came off Santo Manzanillo.
"I got a fastball, middle in, and I stayed behind the ball and hit it through middle," Ramirez said. "He threw me a fastball the pitch before, and I missed it. He's got a good fastball, and I had to be ready for that fastball again, and he threw it again."
