Tyson Gillies with 2 HR in one night, and 4 in his last 6 games. That’s worth watching. If his goal this season was to retool his swing for more power, and he suddenly has more power, maybe the “retool” has finally worked. We shall see.
Three hits for Carlos Tocci, two including a homerun for Brian Pointer, and a good line from Shane Watson – 5IP, 2R, 2H, 1BB, 5K – the only bad thing is one of the hits was a round-tripper. Kelly Dugan’s been on base 9 times the last three days. And once a day, he got to slow down and jog all the way. Feelin’ the flow. Workin’ it. Workin’ it.
Cam Perkins pulled from the game for pinch-runner Chris Serritella, (odd phrase, that), after being hit by a pitch on the hand. Let’s hope he’s alright.
