Quick, Someone Wake Up Leyland

BASEBALL

We didn’t win much at Radio Disney today.  We got some passes to a movie debut next Saturday.  We also got some bags that will work well at the swim club this year.

Andy Oliver made a spot start for the Tigers.  He gave up 2 home runs, 3 walks, 4 stolen bases and hit a batsman.  Yet somehow he ended up with a quality start pitching 6 innings and giving up 3 runs.  Buchholz also gave up 3 runs in 6 innings- also including two home runs.  He only struck out 3.  I think the quality start statistic might be overrated.

Purcey debuted as a Tiger and had a 1-2-3 seventh.

The most memorable part of this game was something that only had a small chance of changing the outcome, but shocked me nonetheless.  Francona pinch hit for his worst hitters and Ortiz homered.  Leyland had Avila available and let Kelly and a slumping Raburn bat.  Both struck out.  Section 217 would have charged down there if we wouldn’t have had to go down two flights 1/3 the way around the stadium and then down to the dugout.  This was crazy.  The Tigers lost 4-3.
