    Let's score runs.

    3-0 Bucs
    No, it wasn't bounced. It was a curveball that Mesoraco tried to frame before he caught it and just missed it.

    Duke's in the game?!? 4 runs through 4. What happened? Leake get injured?

    Good job by Dusty and good job by Duke (again).

    Nope, he gave up 8 hits and 4 runs in 1 and 2/3s innings.

    A few hard luck hits then the wheels fell apart and started getting crushed

    Four runs on eight hits in an inning and two thirds. Some were dinks; some were shots.

    Point conceded on Duke in the top of the 4th/with Wright.

    Not on the decision to pitch him. Probably a very obvious thing to say but most any player who makes it to the majors has some talent. So, even the ones who don't stick will have good moments or even days. Duke is a guy like that. He's bad most of the time. Putting it differently, he hasn't been good enough to stick on a major league roster and he sure shouldn't be on ours now or in PS.

    Woah! Wow. Considering how tight our rotation is...you'd have to think this might hurt his chances for the Playoff rotation. Shame.

    This game is either going to be a total bummer, or it's going to be one of this season's highlights.
