Game 33: It’ll have to do.
Another game, another woeful offensive showing. I’m still comforted in the fact that our pitching has at least held up all season, so we can afford to win games when only scoring three runs. So there’s that. We’re also at 20 wins on the season so far, which about 20% of what I’d like us to end up with. If you’re good at math, you’ll have a rough idea of what I’d like to see us end the season with, wins-wise.
We got another great start out of Freddy Garcia, who is proving himself to be a monumental asset for us in the rotation. He pitched six innings, gave up 1 ER on 6 H, walked two and struck out three. Dave, Joba and Mo pitched the final three innings, and Mo picked up save #13, which means he’s only 30 saves away from the all-time saves record. Keep going, Mo!
Speaking of moving forward toward countdowns, Derek got another two hits tonight, which means he’s now only 38 hits away from 3,000. He went 2-4 on the night with an RBI. Our other two runs came courtesy of a single by Alex in the 5th. Aside from that, we got no other offense from our lineup. I will say that all but three people in the lineup got at least one hit, so it’s a start. Let’s keep it going for the next game.

Freddy, Derek, and Alex!
