"It was a weird game. There were a lot of walks, and it was just a weird game," said first baseman Adam LaRoche. "Not a ton of tough plays. 'Effectively wild' would apply. It was awesome."

The game wasn't perfect, but it was still pretty impressive.

"I told [manager A.J. Hinch], 'I'm not coming out until I give up a home run or a hit,' " Jackson said. "I told him he could skip my next start, but I'm not coming out."
