Rod the Rocket scored all the way from first??? MEDIC!!!!

I can only assume that Presley would have had an inside-the-parker if not for Barajas in front of him.....

Nice 10 pitch AB by Correia, even though he struck out.

Props to Correia on that at-bat. He put more effort into it than the entire Astros lineup combined has shown tonight. The crowd appreciated it, too.

I was going to predict that Barmes would get on base in each of his first three plate appearances tonight, but I forgot.

That prediction would have been more outlandish that guessing the next Powerball numbers...or at least about the same odds. Props to Clint though.

Houston has had 22 plate appearances so far tonight and have faced all of 67 pitches. I feel like I want to tell the Astros that I want my money back.

Suicide squeeze. Honestly, I don't think Corporan would have had a play even if he'd realized that Presley was coming down the line (which he clearly wasn't). It was a decent bunt.

Awesome between-innings song choice: The Ramones, "Sheena Is a Punk Rocker". Yeah, now that's what I'm talking about. 8-)

You know, if you'd have told me before the game that Cutch, Jones and Pedro were going to go a combined 1-for-10, I'd have said, "Wow, we might be in trouble tonight. Because it's not like Presley is going to score three runs out of the 8-hole or anything."

So after all the agita we've all had the past week, the net result is that we lost 1/2 game in the standings. *shrug* Welcome to the world of 10 playoff berths, I suppose.

Raise it!

When is the last time the Pirates had four 10-game winners? There aren't too many teams that can make that claim I am sure.

Me, too. Plus I wish March Madness would go back to a 32 team format. And the World Cup would return to the 24 team standard. Too much money, though, in having all these teams....

Well, the last time they had THREE 10-game winners was 2003.
Jeff Suppan 10-7
Kip Wells 10-9
Josh Fogg 10-9

The last time they had three guys with MORE than 10 wins was 1999.
Todd Ritchie 15-9
Jason Schmidt 13-11
Kris Benson 11-14

The last time they had four guys with 10 wins or more was 1997.
Francisco Cordova 11-8
Esteban Loiza 11-11
Jon Leiber 11-14
Jason Schmidt.

Incidentally, in 2008 and 2010, the Bucs did not have ANY pitchers win 10 games or more.


..and in the World Championship year of 1979, the Bucs had SIX pitchers with 10 wins or more...
John Candelaria 14-9
Bruce Kison 13-7
Bert Blyleven 12-5
Jim Bibby 12-4
Kent Tekulve 10-8
Enrique Romo 10-5.

My memory is a little foggy, but with Teke and Romo winning 20, and Grant Jackson another 8, there must have been a lot of last minute wins.
