Box Score Bytes - Game 37

- That was one of those cringe worthy games.  To have the bases loaded with no outs in the bottom of the 9th and have no players left on the bench then throw up a pitcher who is then told not even to swing the bat?  That was another Tracy bone head move...come on, someone suicide squeeze or something.  Get the one run home and take an out at 2nd or 1st, you'd still have a guy on 3rd.  Realize the run expectancy for bases loaded no outs is 2.417 runs...Rox get none!!!!!

- Again in a situation like that you got to be bold, what are you going to lose?  Your 8.5 games out of first place going nowhere and you choose to be conservative, "I didn't want him hitting into a double play"  Just read that as I am a wimp with no imagination and I wasn't playing for the win!

- B.J. freaking Upton...

- Biggest buzz of the game:

- Both teams issued a total of 15 walks and gave up 25 hits...

- Rox threw 222 pitches in the game, that probably isn't good...

- Tracy used 21 players today and even his magic he didn't save one for a critical at bat...disappointing, loss #2 of you (and well the bullpen too)

- How ugly was the bullpen?  Gave up 11 hits, 8 runs, 4 walks, and threw 116 pitches...that is good stuff
