Great end to a great day.
Ricky Romero threw 8.1 shut out innings, he would have gone further but, with 1 out in the 9th, a strike 3 pitch to Vladimir Guerrrero got away from J.P. Arencibia and Vlad got to first. So Farrell took him out of the game. Romero gave up 4 hits, 3 walks and struck out 9. Pretty good. Jon Rauch got the last couple of outs for his 8th save.
We had enough offense, 10 hits, but just 3 runs. JP had a solo homer.Eric Thames had 2 hits and an RBI. Yunel Escobar had 2 hits and a walk. Everyone else had one hit except for Travis Snider, who had 4 strikeouts.
Jay of the Day was Ricky (.360 WPA). No one got to the Suckage number.
And tomorrow we should have Colby Rasmus in the lineup. That will be fun, can't wait.
