Pitching, Pitching, Pitching

Games 5: Bulls 1, Braves 0
Season: 5-0
Wrap, Box

For the Bulls:
  • Jason Cromer: 5 innings, 3 hits, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts, no runs, the win.
  • Chad Orvella: 2 innings, 1 hit, no walks, 4 strikeouts.
  • Winston Abreu: 2 innings, no hits, no walks, 1 strikeout, the save.
Doesn’t get much better than that.

For the Braves:
  • Tommy Hansen: 5 ⅔ innings, 3 hits, 2 walks, 7 strikeouts, 1 run, the loss.
  • Mariano Gomez: 2 ⅓ innings, 1 hit, 1 walk, 1 strikeout.
Pretty darn good as well.

However, Jon Weber did his leadoff batter thing at the top of the 3rd with a single. Got to second on a wild pitch. And then got home on a double by Reid Brignac, who seems to have started to see the ball very well. That was the only scoring, but it was enough.

The Bulls have started the season by winning 5 games. The last two games were shutouts. Things are looking good! Price on the mound tomorrow afternoon. Let’s hope for some decent weather because it has been seriously uncomfortable at the DBAP the last two nights, cold and damp. Not ashamed to admit that I gave up after the 5th and headed for home, listening to Neil Solondz on the radio. Hey, we’ve got 67 more games at home this year. We’ll be in t-shirts before long wishing that it would get down to at least 80. In the meantime … just seems wrong to wear long johns and a goose down jacket to a baseball game. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.)
