Inning 1) Since making the switch to the lead off role, CarGo is batting 2-12 with 4 Ks, 1 BB, and 1 run. Probably not what Tracy was hoping for....Cook finally gets his start (Rox leading 190th start). He was little nervous with a double to lead things off but gets his 25th career pick off.
Inning 2) Blackmon gets his first big league hit but Cook doesn't settle in and loads the bases but then only allows one run.
Inning 3) The Toddfather goes deep for his 8th of the year (if you recall he hit all of 8 last year!). Wiggy singles Tulo home as well.
Inning 4) Three up and three down for each sides
Inning 5) Tulo / Helton team up...this year's Batman and Robin?
Inning 6) Cook never gets into the groove...can't get out of the sixth with the lead and Padres tie it up 3-3.
Inning 7) Three up and three down for both sides
Inning 8) Lindstrom struggles, prevents the leading run from scoring with a play at the plate, and the Rox go to the ninth hoping not to go into extra innings (0-4 this year in extras)
Inning 9) CarGo finally gets on base, sacrificed to second, goes to third on a wild pitch, and Tulo doubles him in...hallelujah the Rox get a hit with a runner in scoring position...Street gets 17th save! Rox WIN! Rox WIN!
First series win since May 16th. A 4 - 5 road trip. Could have been better but I'll take it for early June. Now lets get home and fix it (and win some!).
