Winning ugly ... look no further than this contest.

9th inning, 4-3 lead, Hanrahan pitching, 2 outs, nobody on, 0-2 count on Hundley. Cruise to victory?

Yeah, not so much. Hit, hit, 1st and 3rd with two outs.

Hanrahan finished it off ... thank heavens. This game was just staggering towards a meltdown.

Throw a slider 0-2 to Hundley, and this thing dies in its sleep. The 0-2 fastball was not a good idea.

Offensive struggle after the first aside, I think a key play was Cedeno trying to barehand that ball he didn't need to in the 8th. He had plenty of time to scoop and throw, and that directly led to the third run, and a much changed batting order faced in the 9th.

McDonald had a nice start, but even I could see he was starting to leave his pitches up in the 6th, which resulted in the 2 run homer. I don't blame Hurdle for trying to get six out of him, but you could see a bad thing coming.

THAT all said.... RAISE IT!

An ugly win, we'll take it!

Chance for .500 tonight. In years past this would guarantee a loss, but the ability to win on the road makes me think this year's team is different.

And what were they thinking when they built that huge ballpark? It's hard enough being a small-market team. No need to further handicap yourself.
