im still in shock. O-Perez just threw a 5 hit shutout.
AND ONLY WALKED ONE (1)!!!!! in the 9th inning to boot.
anyway...lets go thru this by game...
when i last reported we had just swept the Cards and were heading into philly for a 4 game set.
Game 1:: Lost 4-3
Bannister made his comback pitching 6innings, giving up 6 hits and 4 ER. not too shabby, but we lost.
Game 2:: Perez thrw a Perez style game, 5 walks, 7 k's, and 5 ER. Thank god for a 7 run 7th with doubles by Green and Chavez to get the win.
Game 3:: PPD---next day:: My boy John Maine went 6.1, 5 hits, 2 ER. 6 Run 3rd inning was all we needed.
off to Colorado--
Game 1:: the return of Kaz Mat....he went 3-5 with 3 runs scored. But Steve Traxx got alot of run support...again...win 10-5
Game 2:: My other boy Dave Williams went 7 scattering 9 hits and giving up 3 ER. D.Wright had 5 rbis. win 11-3
Game 3::well we cant win them all...O-Perez got rocked. loss 8-4
to the lone star state--
Game 1::D.wright and Chavez had good games, in the return of Tommy G. Tommy didnt pitch very well...but thats ok win 8-7
Game 2::Johnny Maine 2 hits, 2 ER over 6.1 D.Wright added 2 Rbis Win 4-2
Game 3::WTF. Pitchers Duel-- El Duque: gave up 1 hit. 1 HIT! thats all the 'stro's got. and they won 2-1! oswalt threw a perfect game thru 5. delgado homered in the 9th Loss 2-1
Game 1:: WTF AGAIN! 1 hit. 1 measly hit we got. in the 2nd inning. Traxx doesnt get run support. he got no hit support. he got nothing!
game 2:: PPD played as DH on weds.
D.Williams v. Smoltzy....winner Williams!! 6 innings of 5 hit ball, 1 ER and 4 k's
Shawn Green Day: 3-4 1 RBI
game 3:: mr. perez! 9 innings...5 hits...0 runs....1 walk. wow. just wow.
3-4 2 rbis for Green.
whew. thats the snappy recap for ya'll...
the magic number is down to 9!...maybe 8 if philly loses.
green is turning it on. wright is kinda coming around. beltran is back from his fence encounter. floyd is back from his ankle trouble (kinda)
so thats where we stand. sorry that sucked. big time...
better blogging to come.
