Despite the latest “we shoulda won game” Big Pelf earned himself a major victory. He bounced back from last week’s start to rejoin the ranks of young guns we can look forward to next year.
To me Pelf’s mental game is still being refined so to see him compartmentalize a bad start and dominate again 2R, 4H, 0BB, 2K in 6IP.
I know people are getting excited as we creep closer to .500 but the hard truth is we’re not winning a wildcards. And BMF is OK with that. Give me exciting games and develop young talent and that’s a very good rebuilding year.
It was a tough game to lose but you had to know it was coming once we blew the lead.
It didn’t matter once Paulino blasted the HR but Beltran HAS to score from second on Pagan’s hit in the 8th. What was he thinking?
Ronny Paulino also gets a personal W going 4-4, with a three-run shot. Love it when Paulino has these epic days.
Reyes continues his march towards a Crawford contract by extending his hitting streak to 12 going 2-4 with a run and SB number 20.
Bizarre to see Randy Wolf balk in a run considering it was the first balk of his CAREER!?!?
