Tough loss tonight

Batters couldn't figure out Clemens tonight, & 'Stros got an RBI on a bloop hit that's normally an out. AJ pitched pretty well. Tough to get too upset over this one.

 

Still we've got Moehler vs Backe tomorrow and then DTrain vs Oswalt on Wed. A split would give 'em a 3-3 homestand, but facing two teams that are basically in last place I'm hoping for 4-2.

 

Any early word on how bad Castillo's injury was?

meanwhile the Braves have run off 5 straight.

 

They continue to prove people wrong. WTF is going on when you can win with that offense?

I've been thinking lately....I think I'd be just as happy to win the division this year as I would be to win the World Series.

Very tough loss.

 

AJ pitched a great game.

 

The bullpen pitched great also.

 

And we failed on beating up on a team that has been getting beat up.

 

We should have won, but we didn't.

 

Those always hurt.

why should have we won?

 

the only inning we had a legit shot in scoring was in the 8th, right after Rocket and right before Lidge

I wouldn't consider any loss to a future first ballot hall of famer a tough loss.

Thank Encarnacion for not running down that improbable 3B properly. That second run killed us against Clemens. :thumbdown

With a blazing fastball that approached 100 miles per hour and a work ethic like none other, Nolan Ryan dominated hitters for an unparalleled 27 seasons on his way to 5,714 strikeouts, an all-time record. During four decades of prominence, he totaled 324 victories and a host of major league records. Most notable of his milestones are a mystifying seven no-hitters and 12 one-hitters. The eight-time All-Star fanned a single-season record 383 batters in 1973, and his career strikeouts encompassed 1,176 different players.

Tonights game wasnt a tough loss IMO. The Marlins lost to Clemens, it was a tough loss in that Castillo strained his hammy again but Easley taking ABs isnt bad and his fielding is very good, this was the game to lose in the series, now they have to take advantage of the next two games.

 

Oswalt hasnt been himself this year. Plus he going against D-Train and we need DTrain to pitch the way he has pitched all year.

how many losses does Nolan have?

 

(not that wins and losses are a great number judging a pitcher)
