Hey Mikey…He Likes It!
Two pitches decided the outcome of the game tonight:
#1…the one to Danny Valencia that Danny Boy sent 426 feet into the second deck in leftfield;
#2…the one that Jered Weaver grooved to Michael Cuddyer after Cuddy had fouled off all sorts of pitches high and low, outside and in, but eventually turning it into a three-run double.
Preview (72-52, 1st, 5.0 GA CWS): Nick Blackburn (7-7, 6.66) vs. Rich Harden (4-4, 5.45). With Slowey on the DL, Blackie is back and (hopefully) here to stay now.
