    Pitch 4: Strike 1 (looking)
    Pitch 3: Ball 3
    Pitch 2: Ball 2
    Pitch 1: Ball 1

    Nice AB by Randa, too.

    Pitch 5: Ball 4

    Nope, took first pitch looking, then pulled the next one for a flyout to Right, Freel advancing to third.

    Pitch 5: Strike 2 (swinging)
    Pitch 4: Ball 3
    Pitch 3: Foul
    Pitch 2: Ball 2
    Pitch 1: Ball 1

    Griffey's got the AB going.

    Pitch 6: Foul
    Pitch 7: K Griffey Jr fouled out to catcher

    Two outs.

    Casey makes DY look like Eddie Yost.

    Griffey swung at ball 4. Ugly string of bats by 3/4's of the "big 4".

    Griffey chases ball 4 on a 3-1 count and then pops out. This guy can't throw a strike..don't help him.

    Wily Mo did the same thing. What a horrible string of atbats there.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Pitch 1: Ball
    Pitch 2: Strike (Swinging)
    Ptich 3:W Pena grounded into fielders choice to shortstop, J Randa out at second.

    End of Inning

    Fossum got both our left-handers out that inning.

    Horrible not to get a run that inning.

    thanks, fans,...I don't have the visual.

    So, our cleanup hitters helped Fossom out of his first-inning wildness, huh?

    If Hudson can get out of this inning w/out giving up a run, he'll cut his ERA in half down to 4.50. Looking for something optimistic here.

    Start of Inning

    R Taylor fouled out to catcher.
    T Hall grounded out to second.
    A Gonzalez grounded out to shortstop.


    Sweet Lou!

    Hudson is wild, doing anti-pitch to contact throwing. I suspect he will be demoted after this game.

    Innings like that is the reason why ...people pick on this offense from time to time........ Pena i expect it from....Casey will never change his hack approach....and Griffey should know better.
