Hey, a 1 run loss. That’s really old.
Ever the 7th, I was thinking that if I had to stay up to 1AM to see the end of the game, it’s cool that it’s a really awesome game. And then I thought it’d really suck if this was the Philly game, Part 2.
And it does suck. This was horrible – legendary so, if it was at a time anyone saw.
I guess my “Howry is bad every other appearance” theory is looking thru. Not sure why they couldn’t just leave in Wuertz, seeing as he threw all of 6 pitches in his one inning of work. Ohman and Angel aren’t good coming on with runners on base, and everything that could go wrong did, just like it did for the Dodgers a couple innings previously.
So, on the day we get the hitting going, the bullpen goes again. I don’t know. I’m happy there’s a game in 13 hours, so we don’t have to linger on this one too long.
