And lets give cuedos to Heisey too. Playing before family, the kid goes 3 fer 4 with his first hit, HR, and RBI.
We gotta be patient with these youngsters folks.
We face Zach Duke in today's game, vs Bailey. Last time we faced him (4/16), Duke ended up with a no-decision, but pitched 7 strong innings, 6 hits, 1 run. The Pirates ended up winning the game 4-3 in the bottom of the 9th off Masset.
I really do want to sweep these guys in their park and repay the favor.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
