Games To Watch Wed. 7-26-06
Tigers 4 @ Indians 1 W: Verlander 13-4, 2.69 L: Sabathia 7-7, 3.82 S: Todd Jones 27
This is a tough game for my heart. Of course I am for the Tigers, and Verlander deserves a real shot a joining Halladay and the few others at the Esteemed 13 win mark. On the other hand, it’s CC.
Padres 10 @ Dodgers 3 W: J. Peavy 5-10, 5.01 L: B. Penny 10-5, 3.53
Giants 3 @ Nationals 4 W: S. Rivera 1-0, 5.18 L: A. Benitez 4-2, 2.63
Pure nostalgia. I had a soft spot for THIS Pedro when he was a Met. I do believe Lowry has pitched better than his record at times this season. Could be interesting.
Marlins 5 @ Braves 6 W: J. Smoltz 8-5, 3.55 L: T. Tankersley 1-1, 1.72 S: B. Wickman 17
Who is this rookie Johnson? He tore up the minors and is clearly ready to face the Braves. Forget his record. Look at that ERA. Does he have to face Smoltz? On the other hand, what greater thrill?
