Baseball Pool Update 8

The Brewers salvaged the final game of the three game series with the Cubs, winning 9-4. The Cubs bullpen gets rocked in this one as Craig "Old Man" Counsell hits a bases clearing triple in the bottom of the eighth to seal the deal for Milwaukee. Chris Capuano gets the win for the Brewers going 5.1 innings giving up two earned runs. The Brewers hit two dingers as well.

Seattle and Cleveland were postponed again due to snow. They are supposed to play a doubleheader today to make up for some of these lost games.

I said at the beginning of the year that the Dodgers may be the darkhorse pick of the pool and they are starting to heat up. They beat the Giants 10-4 yesterday to complete the sweep. Gonzales hits two homers, gets 4 RBI and Wolf goes six innings giving up only one run. Detroit beat KC 3-2. Bonderman goes six innings giving up two runs, and the Royals with the quiet bats ruin a six inning zero earned run performance by Duckworth. Ivan Rodriguez hits a three run homer in the top of the ninth to cap off the come from behind victory for Detroit. The Twins beat the Sox 3-1. The rookie Danks pitches well for the Sox except for the three run homer by Morneau. Unfortunately for the Sox, that is all the Twins would need. Santana shuts down the Sox going seven giving up zero runs - and only one hit. The Mets drop the rubber game of their set with Atlanta 3-2. Kyle Davies pitched a strong 6.2 innings for the Braves. Hernandez went six innings for the Mets giving up only one run. The Braves hit consecutive RBI doubles in the bottom of the eighth inning to come from behind for the victory.The Yankees drop another to Baltimore, 6-4. This game was played in the snow as well. Bedard goes seven for Baltimore giving up three scattered runs. Rasner only made it 4.1 innings for the Yanks before getting yanked after giving up 5 runs. Kevin Millar goes two for three for Baltimore, with a double, a homer and three RBI.
Boston beat Texas 3-2. Ortiz hits two homers and Schilling goes seven, only giving up one run for the win.

So the standings:

1. PS Indy (Mets) 4 wins
1. Graphix (Dodgers) 4 wins
2. JohnnyJ (Cubs) 3 wins
2. Dan from Madison (Brewers) 3 wins
2. Craig (Tigers) 3 wins
2. PSL Dave (Red Sox) 3 wins
3. Snake (Indians) 2 wins
3. Carl from Chicago (White Sox) 2 wins
3. John (Yankees) 2 wins
