Not great at bats. But the Bucs lead 3-1. That's why you always put the ball in play. You never know what's gonna happen. Give yourself a chance.

Not to be too overly dramatic, but...

Sweeping the defending Champs, ON THE ROAD to get back to .500... that's the kind of turn of events that can be a season changer.

Agreed. Interesting start to season. All series have been sweeps. Not sure I remember that happening very often...if at all.

Another awful call by Block on the Frazier HR. I didn't think it could be worse than Tim Neverette, but now I am wondering.

Look at josh Bell on deck in the second picture, he looks 8 feet tall! Is it me or is the picture distorted? Great sweep of the hated Cubs. No longer lovable losers.

I can't stop laughing at that picture. Bell looks like Slenderman.

ha ha, yeah, photos can look very bizarre sometimes.... take a look at this, i copied bell and put him at the plate, it's an exact copy of him in the on deck circle, but his size doesn't look strange anymore, looks normal.... optical illusion at work?

I was in the car listening on the radio in the 8th inning. We had four consecutive at-bats with the bases loaded and less than two out.

We go pop-up, check swing grounder, check-swing grounder, pop-up in those four at-bats. And yet we managed to score two runs.

The Lumber Company is back!

Gosselin is on the team because of Kang. When it started looking like Kang wasn't coming back, Huntington wanted another infielder, because he doesn't trust Frazier or Hanson on defense.

I know Gosselin hasn't looked good so far but that was the rationale.

I'm pretty sure that is Polanco on deck in that picture. Frazier's home run occurred in the top of the 9th inning. Bell came in to the game in the 8th as a pinch hitter, and then Jaso came in to play 1B in the bottom of the 8th. Therefore, Bell was not in the game when Frazier hit the homer. After Frazier's at bat, Hurdle probably pulled Polanco back into the dugout and had Kuhl hit instead since it was a 5 run game.
