It was Lombo's birthday too! What a great birthday gift!
...and the day before yesterday, the birthday board (normally runs between 4th and 5th innings) recognised the birthdays of Gio Gonzalez and (two days late - we didn't play on the 17th or 18th) Sean Burnett. It looks like this will be a regular (and nice) thing.
This playoff-clinching 91st win pulls us even with another one of Walter Johnson's relatively early teams, and our next win will match the number of wins of our lone World Champion:
99 - 1933 [pennant winner]
96 - 1925 [pennant winner]
94 - 1930
93 - 1932
92 - 1924 [World Series winner], 1931
91 - 1912, 2012
90 - 1913
87 - 1945
86 - 1969
