Well, I think we all know who should go to the All-star game after his brilliant pitching performance today.

Good job. Although another 1-0 victory is a little concerning, still a win is a win, can't complain too much.

What's worse? Winning 15 to 0 and then losing the next two to the same opponent, or losing 15 to 0 and then winning the next two by a combined 3 runs? I think both teams are in tough shape

Boss302: I'm pretty sure the two wins are more important than the one win for the dodgers who won by 15. It all comes down to wins and losses and not runs scored.

@boss302: Take two wins. Baseball's match play, not stroke play.

Can't figure this team out at all but solid pitching today by all 3 pitchers. Baker was solid, Perk has really proven himself as a clutch late inning pitcher and of course Capps makes it interesting in the end

The weaker beating up on the weakest.

Remember when Baker had to 'win' the competition for the 5th spot in the rotation this spring? Yeah...that was silly.
