4. Ad. LaRoche, 1B
5. Diaz, C
6. Moss, LF
7. An. LaRoche, 3B

9. Duke, P

Line-ups coming up later today. Nyjer is scheduled to sit out again today. I'm hoping to see a similar line-up to yesterday and I am hoping to see a similar offensive break out.

These next five games are vital, and the Buccos need to win no less than 4 of these games. I predict a tough road trip to the Windy City this upcoming weekend.

Diaz needs to take the spring out of his mitt.

Jimenez was rescued that inning by two called strikes on Young. Both were high and the strike three call was outside. It was not a strike. I would have liked to see Sanchez up with bases loaded, two out.

Sanchez and Tulowitzki had similar calls today...seems like a wide strike zone, Bob Walk on the TV side said he loves it because the game goes faster...

No doubt, and I agree that calling strikes makes the game move faster, keeps the bats moving, etc. But the pitch to Young was letter high and 4" off the outside corner.

A strike has to be a pitch that can be hit. Young cannot hit a chest-high curve, well off the corner.

Nate with the bomb. That ball went a long, long way.

Jimenez threw a hanging curve to Nate, who hit it 420 feet. He threw the same pitch to Laroche, who took it for a called strike.

Laroche should hit that pitch ... not sure why he watched it float over the plate, belt high, inner half.

Still admiring Nates maybe?

Duke's change-up is really good today.

Duke is giving up a ton of fly balls. He threw pretty well the first 3 innings but that leadoff walk to Spillshit was a killer. I thought that Spillshit swung at the last pitch ... not called a swing. That really hurt.

Moss now has a higher average than Adam LaRoche... .240 to .239

So THIS is what it feels like to be on the other side of a bullpen meltdown!

9 runs and counting!

The Rockies are having some problems...

Pirates put an 9 spot up in the 7th, only one out...and that is a questionable out

McLouth 3-5 with with 4 RBIs and another bomb ... and the way things are going, maybe he'll get to bat again and get that triple for the cycle ...

8th inning, 11-4 lead, hasn't piched since May 8th, bullpen got a workout yesterday, will we ever see Donnie Veal pitch again? Or did I miss something that prhibits him from doing so?

If it gets down to it, it might be a coin toss whether Gorzo or Veal goes out...I dont mind Meek getting the 8th, he might push Yates out of that role now that hes on the DL...
