So much good happened tonight, but that ninth inning really sucked up all the good feelings. Oh well, they don't give you style points for wins.
- Ubaldo: 7.0 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 10 SO, 0 BB. This coming in an especially crucial game. With Masterson out indefinitely, he needed to step up, and boy, has he.
- Jose Ramirez made his first major-league start, and was both good and bad. The good: scoring from first on a groundout. The bad: committing a error that led to an unearned run. The ugly: getting pick off at first base. But I think he'll get some more starts down the stretch.
- Yan Gomes threw out two runners and hit a home run. I don't think there's any doubt that he's the starting catcher now.
- If Chris Perez had blown this game I'm not sure what I would have done. Thank goodness you didn't have to find out.
