9-9: Back to .500

I will gladly take a 4-4 record for this completed road trip. Granted, it would've been nice to see Narveson hold on to that 3-0 lead today, but most of us knew that it was a matter of time before the Philly offense woke up. Not to mention, had Milwaukee and Pittsburgh played that game last week the trip could've ended with a 5-4 record. That being said, I'm looking forward to the upcoming weekend series with last place Houston. Although the Astros had their way with the Crew all last season.

Chris Narveson looked sharp as a knife during the first 5 innings until he gave up a 3-run hommer in the 6th to Placido Polanco. (4 k's, 3 walks, 4 hits)

Kintzler added to the mess when he allowed Victorino a solo shot.

Lucroy has been solid at the plate this series and it amazes me that he caught today. Honestly, look at the number of innings he put in since Sunday (starting with the double-header). He blasted a homer and also took a walk.

Feilder collected 3 hits, drove in 2 runs, and walked. He doubled off Lee early-on and that set the tone for the rest of the line-up.

AM1250's post-game show felt that the coaching could've been better with their last at-bat. With Weeks on 1B and Gomez facing a 3-1 count.

Bud Selig took over the Dodgers finances today. The messy divorce all-but drained the club.

Going in to today's game, the Crew had the NL's lowest ERA.

Haudricourt is reporting that Shaun Marcum is still slated to start Saturday. His father's surgery went well. I'm stoked! I get to see him throw; taking my 4 year-old!
