Yay Back In First: 42-35


Nick Blackburn didn’t pitch very well again, but it wasn’t a dumpster fire and the offense did well, so that tends to hide things. Hitting wise, Span had 3 triples, which is awesome (more on that in a later post) and Jim Thome needs some more starts at DH.

Best hitter: Denard Span (+.399)
