Starting pitcher: M.C. O'Connor
No. 75 throws a fine game and we get shut out, managing only five hits. That hurts! And the fookin' Crockies win in SD, giving them a 49-41 record, just like us. My worst nightmare about the 2nd half of the season is playing itself out in the first two games. I'm glad there are 72 more, you know, because this road trip is seriously freaking me out. Matt Cain gets a shot to stop the three-game losing streak tomorrow afternoon, and then we face the hungry, under-performing Atlanta Braves. We miss Javier Vasquez, but have to face crafty vet Derek Lowe and emerging stud Jair Jurrjens. Then it is on to Colorado for what is looking more and more like a crucial showdown with a division rival. We've scored ONE RUN in 23 innings. That's got to change, lads.
