So I realized I never did my recap of the Pirates series so I'll work on that now while I watch the guys take on the Astros.
First off, what I think was the biggest thing in the series, Nick Blackburn pitching a complete game. Way to go Blackie! I was so hoping he could get the shut out, but after that wasn't going to happen, I was hoping for a complete game and boy did he deliver! I didn't get anything done during the 9th at work, I just sat there and listened hoping he'd finish it up.
Great to see some balls going deep for our guys. Especially Cuddy and Buscher. I do feel bad for Brian that he doesn't get to see the plate more, because I wouldn't mind seeing that a little more often from him.
Overall this whole team is really starting to come together, from the starting pitchers, to our offense and our defense.
I'm going to end this by saying "Dome Field Advantage". That is all ;o) Our guys don't seem to have any issues catching balls in the out field.
Tomorrow: It's Twins Family Day tomorrow at the Dome (I really wish they would announce this sooner because I would have loved to have gone to that game, any one wanna go?) I do love seeing those kids run around and play their little game of ball with Daddy.
