Again Ian didn't really deserve a win because of the walks but just once I'd like to see our hitters help him out.

"We still do not believe that there is anything that constitutes clutch hitting."

Those who refuse to watch Sanchez hit.

Chris Peters circa 2003 = Tom Glavine today.

Any team that does not light up Glavine should be embarrassed. He is simply awful.

Now that was fun. Pitchers,pitchers, pitchers everywhere and not a run scored.

TIL Freddy came through again. Twice tonight He drives in runs to take the lead and then to win the game. He is getting in a grove now and this five in a row could be extended Saturday.

Most of the line up is now producing at least something. We need more from the 7 and 8 spot, but even Bixler got us going in the 9th tonight.

Starters are not getting us buried early in games. We can win if we don't fall behind by 4 or 5 in the first few innings.

Bautista got the inning rolling with a one-out single. Big, big hit. Bixler then hit into a force out, and I was not unhappy in trading Bautista on the bases for Bixler.

Mientk got a big hit to move Bixler to third and Freddy brought him in.

The game was also decided in the top of the 9th, when Grabow came into the game with 2 on, no outs. He fanned Kotsay on a real close pitch (3-2 count) then got the double play grounder. Great job by Grabow cleaning up a mess and getting the win.
