Great win tonight! Hope Cutch can start one of those streaks now. We could really use his bat stepping it up...plus I want him to end up way ahead of Cabrera! Good team effort. Keep the boat going straight Buccos! Special kudos to Wandy Rodriguez for his second straight great game. Win the series tomorrow, Bucs!

STARTER: WRod. GREAT START. Seven shutout innings. Personally, I would have left him in. I understand the reasoning by Hurdle to take him out, especially with the delay and all. Of course, if he had gone back out and got rocked a little, we would be blaming Hurdle! He now has gone 13 straight scoreless innings. If he can keep this up, maybe the trade will look better!

WINNER: WRod goes 7 shutout innings to get the win, raising his record to 10-13, with very respectable 3.71 ERA. Keep it up Wandy!

Honorable Mention: GJones went 1-3 plus a walk, scored one and drove in one. Hanrahan worked a solid, scoreless 9th in a non-save situation, which we all know sometimes makes him a little shakey.

STAR #3: Brock Holt. The kid went 4-5, with a double and scored two runs. So far, he has looked adequate defensively. Can he be the shortstop of the future? I like how he looks! I hope. He is hitting .462...man, if only he had 475 or so more plate appearances....

STAR #2: Cutch! We need his bat going again. He went 4-4, driving in 3 runs, and scoing one, including a double. He got his average up over the "magic number", which is Cabrera's .346!.

STAR #1: Giving this to WRod tonight. He was exactly what the doctor ordered. I know I tend to not make the pitchers the #1 star, especially when we have someone with big offensive performances...but I think WRod deserves it tonight... and they ARE called Animal's Stars!
