Box Score Bytes - Game 89

- Game 24 of the Great Tracy Experiment: Record 10-14. Francis goes 5.0 innings. Throws 72 pitches. Gives up 1 run and leaves with a win.  If it wasn't for a rain delay in the Top of the ninth inning which then led to a game tying homer, Francis might have gotten the win.  By the way since the experiment begin the team record is 10-14 but the starter's record is 4- 11 with 9 no decisions and a bullpen record of 6-3.

- Fowler saves the game with a great grab in center to rob an extra base hit and a sacrifice fly to deep center to score the winning run.  A nice July so far for Rox center fielder.  Too bad Rox are 19 games below .500.

- Gotta love the umpires who stop a game in the Top of the Ninth inning with two runners on and one out.  Have to wonder why it even went to a 9th if the weather was like it was.  Amazing with one pitch after the delay Pirates hit a game tying homer.  Gotta love baseball!

- Interesting to see what happens when Helton comes off the DL...Tracy hasn't had to juggle the lineup with Colvin getting his starts.
