Box Score Bytes - Game 73

- Apodaca Era is over.  Kind of fitting that Rox give up 21 hits, 12 runs, and 4 dingers in his exile.  Team calls it a transfer.  He is now a special assistant to the GM.  Can't wait for the GM to go next...Apodaca was hired in October of 2002.  Rox went 725 - 806 in his tenure...

- Game 8 of the Great Tracy Experiment: Record 3-5.  Friedrich threw 70 pitches in a 4.1 inning outing. He was actually doing OK.  Only down one run when he left.  Moscoso came in and promptly gave up 8 runs in 1.2 innings.  Nights like tonight you have to wonder if starter should have gone a bit longer...also have to wonder if this experiment was the cause of demise of Apodaca

- A Coors Field kind of night.  87 plate appearances, 33 hits, 17 runs, and 6 home runs.  Yikes!

- Interesting tid bit but at one point there were four Rox with socks showing tonight...I love the old school look.  Glad to see Nats' Harper do the high sock thing.

- How often do player's match up at the plate and on the mound with the last name?  CarGo and Gio, both Gonzalez's, did tonight.
