Terrific Torra

Season: 43-47; Trip: 1-0; Bulls v. Braves: 5-4; Standings

Matt Torra does not get the buzz of his teammate Chris Archer, but he is having one heck of a season, particularly the last several games. He had a brilliant night giving up only one run on just four hits. The home run points out his one shortcoming, giving up the big ones. That in turns drives some of his other stats. Nevertheless, he’s got the most innings of any Bulls pitcher, the most wins,  and (for the 2012 Bulls), a decent ERA. Will he get a chance in September? Worth thinking about. And Archer's on today. Looks good for the Bulls.

In the meantime, the Bulls jumped on Todd Redmond (is he ever going to go up to Atlanta and stick there?) for three runs in the first. That was enough. 

Leslie Anderson homered in the first inning and then was given two intentional walks. Guess he's got Gwinnett convinced he's dangerous.

Outside the game —
  • For those who listen to the game and have this year’s schedule at hand … the time of Sunday’s game against Gwinnett has been changed to 2:00. So if you crank up your radio for a 5:00 pm start, the game might be over.
  • Why? Well, probably so that everyone except Leslie Anderson and Dane De La Rosa will be able to get planes and trains just a bit earlier.
  • Anderson and De La Rosa are heading back to Buffalo for the All-Star Game on Wednesday. Everyone else has a break until Thursday’s game in Fort Mill, South Carolina against the Knights.
