I can't do PBP, but the Good Guys picked up two in the bottom of the second on four hits. It's 2-0 going to the third.

A ringing single by Figueroa brought home the 2nd run. He really scorched that one, the 1B chalk line may have even been slightly mussed.

Chris Johnson just swung at a pitch headed for his belly button, to ground into an inning-ending DP with 2 men on.

Oh, and congrats to Brett Wallace on his first-ever MLB triple. (albeit on a generous safe call by the 3B ump).

And like a fog slowly creeping up to the coast, so approaches the void to SnS.  End 6: FTC 0, HOU 4

Loser of this game gets the 9th overall pick in the 2011 draft. Winner gets the 11th overall pick.

Looks like the Braves are going to beat the Phillies today. If San Francisco beats San Diego, Giants and Braves are in. If San Diego wins, there is a 3-way tie for the playoffs (NL West and Wild Card).  Who'd have thought SD vs. SF was a series that was going to mean something at the end of this season...

Maybe I spoke to quickly. Gascan is giving it up against the Phillies. Now 8-7 ATL with 2 outs and a runner on base.

Bogusevic making a nice impression in his last game of the year: 4 K's.

ETA: Damn, there's no beating Ron Brand.

Wow. Wilton Lopez looked damn good that inning. He seems to have a little more of a rocking/rotating towards 3B motion in his delivery, no?

That's interesting, and just a bit disappointing. I thought Blum and Michaels brought a very nice bit of veteran seasoning to the youngsters.

Well that was quick.

I hope they bring back Michaels. Hard to ask for more from a 4th OFer. And the $900k option seems very reasonable.
