Game Hero, 79 - 68

Jeff Bagwell
  • 1 - 1, 1 RBI
  • Had the only hit with RISP in the game for either side.
  • First RBI in the majors since May 2nd
  • Strike (foul), Ball, singled to right center, W Taveras scored
  • If that one didn't warm your cockles, you ain't an Astrofan!

Astounding, after watching Jason Lane give his at bat away, and Vizcaino refuse to take a pitch under any circumstances, Bagwell's approach looked so good. He waited on the pitch, stayed back, then punched the pitch where it wanted to be punched.

It seemed like the most natural thing in the world that Bagwell should make solid contact, and that the ball should end up splitting the center and rightfielders.

Don't know 'bout you, but I'm a little choked up . . .
