In what will become the best game recap tradition seen on any baseball blog ever, here is another cat picture for your enjoyment.
This time it’s a shot of my kitten Maddie’s paws. She’s a tortoiseshell cat and a terror. Well, a cute terror. We have five cats and I have about 1,000 pictures of them so I am well prepared for a 162 game season.
Phil Hughes’s line: 3.1 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 2 HRs (84 pitches, 52 strikes) Yep, it was that kind of day for him. But David Phelps came in after Hughes’s exit and was a big relief for the rest of the bullpen. His line: 5.1 IP, 1 ER, 1 H, 4K (78 pitches).
