Sunshine On Another Rainy Day

Bulls 8, Knights 2
Season: 15-10
Wrap, Box

The Bulls leave town today for yet another tour to the Charlotte Knights and the Gwinett (?) Braves. Will be back home to the Louisville Bats and Jonny Gomes on the 12th.

The good: Starting pitching; relief pitching; home runs by Ruggiano, Brignac, and Richard; discipline at the plate (7 walks).

The not-so-good: Runners on third base in 2nd and 3rd innings, none scored; bases loaded in 7th and 8th only 1 run scored; two more K’s by Ruggiano (27 and 28).

The awful: Rain all through the game. Had to have been tough on everyone, even the umpires (one of whom who blew a call in the 2nd). The tag by Albernaz was clean ump!

After a basically shaky 1st and 2nd inning (a hit by pitch to first batter, a walk to the fourth batter in the 1st; a double and a single in the 2nd) we were wondering just why James Houser is on Tampa Bay’s 40-man roster. Maybe, just maybe, he showed why in the next 3 innings. Isringhausen, Choate, and Thayer closed out things nicely.
