I wouldn't be surprised if Arcia gets buzzed inside tomorrow.  Without the flag pole that one might well have gone over the gates into the street.

 

So three batters, and it's double-homer-homer.  You just know Eric Fryer wants a bat in his hands.

20 runs.  We'll get shutout for the next week.

If he gets many more AB's against the Tigers bullpen, Arcia might not just catch Dozier, he might catch Mig Cab.

I will be a little bitter if for some reason we have to bat in the bottom of the 9th.

Pretty hard to ask the offense to do more to give Escobar more chances than they did.

 

And the bullpen managed to avoid an 8th or 9th of the kind that causes the obligatory "The largest 8th/9th inning deficit ever overcome in AL history is..."

20-6. I guess extra points aren't a sure thing with the ball moved back.

Looking at the ERAs of the pitchers, we might see a lot of runs tomorrow.

the moral of the story is that the mods need to go to more games.

I believe we may have been responsible for at least 10 runs,.....clearly.

Pressly gets the W.  I would have scored it that way, too.  Really no one to award the win to but the bats.
