Well, neither of my teams fared particularly well last night. Hopefully Aaron Cook and Barry Zito will have better luck tonight than Jose Acevedo and Rich Harden had yesterday. Notable performers from Tuesday: Luis Gonzalez had three hits from the leadoff spot, Dustan Mohr hit another homer, Matt Holliday was 3 for 5 with a double. Ryan Speier, back again, did exceptionally well at shutting the barn door after Acevedo let all of the cows (nine of 'em, all earned -- earned cows) out. He pitched 2 2/3 scoreless. Jamey Wright pitched in the ninth, so I suppose his demotion to mopup duty is official. USA! USA!
