a) Have two of three of your starters pitch complete games
b) Only have to rely on your bullpen for 2 out of 27 innings
c) Make some Amazing Defensive plays... including two impressive throws to nail greedy runners
d) Bench Fred Lewis in lieu of Nate Schierholtz
e) Hot an inside the park home run as Nate Schierholtz
f) Execute an awesome drag bunt (to piss of the a's fans) and hit a monster shot to left field
g) Dominate the Opposing line-up with light's out pitching!
I am fired up after this series. We did everything right... We put the league on notice. Were not gonna hit a ton but dammit, were going to dominate with our pitching, beat you with our defense, and do everything we can to beat you.
Were now 6 games over .500
Were now in the lead for the wild card spot.
Our top two pitchers are DOMINATING and are early cy young favorites... The young guys are producing and grinding... It is a great time to be a fan! Next up is the angels! Bring em on!
