Well that is how it is supposed to happen every game.
Washburn gets out of trouble early and settles into a groove. The offense hardly ever goes quietly and has a little pop to it.
If you want to get picky about Vlad not getting a hit
OR Donnelly giving up long outs
OR Roenicke sending Finley (who got lucky on the bad defense at the plate),
then I can get picky about Ichiro making the greatest catch I have ever seen to rob Garret of his 2nd homerun
OR A.K.'s butterflies leading to half of their baserunners and snuffing out a rally or two
OR D-Mac's double being a homerun in 26 other major league ballparks.
So there, we were the better team tonight.
