Game 2010.154: Twins at Tigers

What a game last night.  JV has been something else these past few outings.  It took two errors in the ninth for the Twins to plate a run, and he finished with his second complete game in as many tries.  Apparently, he’s developed a new curve over the past few starts.

Pavano is 17-11 this season, with a 1.16 WHIP.  Incredible.   A large part of this has been his ability to get ground outs, as his 1.49 GO/AO ratio is the best it’s been in 10 years.

Bonderman needs two good outings to keep his ERA under 5.

    This is not a good outing.

      Unless he wants to stick around as a batting practice pitcher next year, I think we need to say “Goodbye Mr. Bonderman” (cue some 007 music).

    Not exactly the “Killer B’s” are they?

    Well that was a fun game. Despite the implosion by the usual suspects, we got a good old fashioned slug-fest that turned into a cliffhanger. Tiger history was made and then the guy that went into the books got the game-winning hit.
