Kip Wells threw 7 innings of 1 walk, 4 hit ball.
Pettite allowed 2 runs in 6 IP, Franco got TWO LHB out, Brad Lidge was wild, couldn’t find the strike zone and loaded the bases before getting the last out.
Everett gets CS in yet ANOTHER botched hit and run – Phil ain’t figgered out that even the dumbest opposing manager just WAITING for it.
We are shut out by the freaking Pittsburgh Pirates, by 2 of their starting pitchers whose ERAs were over 6 before the game TWO GAMES IN A ROW!
I am trying, but I can’t find much good to say about how we are doing.
I said before the season started that I would be REAL happy if we ended the year at .500 -
Let me re-say that: I will be REAL happy if we do not outsuck the 03 Tigers or 04 Dbax. I will be REAL happy if we do not break the ML record for getting shut out in a 162 game season. I will be REAL happy if we quit botching all these hit and runs cuz Phil is SO predictable.
Next discussion will be about who the next 5th starter will be.
Because there ain’t real too much to say about not hitting, is there…
