bad, bad inning. Apparently, Ryan Church is upset about not being the starter anymore. Well, you wouldn't know from his performance tonight.
Church acknowledged that he is frustrated about being on the bench. The arrival of Wily Mo Pena is the reason Church has seen his playing time decreased. Church made it into Tuesday's game in place of Pena, who injured his ankle in the second inning.
"I would like to have more home runs. What can you do? Of late, I'm been trying to get everything back with one swing -- trying to get eight home runs, but those things happen," Church said. "Everybody's numbers are down. It sounds like a broken record, but there are no excuses."
