Season: 85-54; Games Remaining: 4
Mike Montgomery had an awful 6th inning, but he came back for a decent 7th. Maybe next year. I’m hoping the Bulls are able to skip his turn in the rotation for the playoffs or, if must use him, Charlie Montoyo has the hook ready.
Craig Albernaz reached on an error and got his third stolen base on the year. He also knocked in the Bulls only run with a double in the 9th.
Today the Bulls will have trekked to Norfolk to finish a game that was suspended in the 2nd inning a week ago Friday. Game time is 5:05. I expect if we happen to be listening we will be educated on exactly how the plate is set in those circumstances. In particular, I think Chris Gimenez was at bat and rumor has it he is about to be, or already has been, called up to Rays. Then they will play a seven-inning game to finish out the evening.
Pitchers have not yet been announced for either team. These four games are absolutely crucial to the Tides playoff hopes.
Outside the game —
- More transactions. Will make a separate post in a few hours.
