What a Rotation!

Game 40: Bulls 6, Iron Pigs 2
Season: 25-15
Wrap, Box

This time through the rotation (Talbot, Price, Davis, Hernandez and Houser) has been nothing short of spectacular. We’ve won 4 games out of the 5 and the one we lost was only by one run. Two of the starters (Davis and Hernandez) got wins (relievers Choate and Day got the other two, Childers took the loss). If you chart our pitching staff’s performance over the rotation, every game is better than the season average to date. Just great work on the mound.

And the hitters have been no slouches either. Joe Dillon got his first home run last night, Brignac, Joyce and Nowak all got doubles (Joyce got two). Durham leads the International league in home runs and doubles, is second in total bases, and has the league’s second best slugging percentage.

  • The Bulls GM has this cryptic comment in his twitter feed, “+@#” and *#@+;!“ just got called up to the bigs”. I don’t have any more information. Will post it when I do.
  • In the meantime, Rays Index speculates as does DRaysBay.
  • An Iron Pigs blog is really not happy with Phillies’ management.
  • Rays starting pitching has been a problem this year. Rays the Stakes thinks Scott Kazmir should be sent down to the Bulls. John Romano of the Tampa Tribune thinks Andy Sonnanstine should be sent to the Bulls.
  • If you are a fan of ACC baseball (I'm not), the N&O has a blog that is following the games.
