FINALLY, SOMEONE, SOME HOW, SOME WAY, COMES THROUGH WITH THE BASES LOADED!!!

NICKY J WITH THE HUGE BASES CLEARING DOUBLE!

that was relieving....

hopefully we can actually build some momentum from this win and maybe sweep the fish and get things goin'

flop did have a nice night in place of belly but that doesn't phase me, belly >>>>>>>> flop.

and is dukes seriously not due back for another 2 weeks? gtfoh. it sounded like he was very close to returning.

o ya, nice to see r.z. hittin the ball good...my faith and confidence in him never wavered, unlike some of you doubters. he'll break out of this slump in a big way.

It was most definitely a strike.

Have you reached this conclusion after reviewing the Gameday PITCHf/x track for the pitch?

The location symbols are established at the front of the plate.  The ball is mostly inside the plate, though it's possible the edge of the ball is aligned with the edge of the plate.  It is NOT most definitely a strike.  It IS possibly a strike, certainly could have been called legitimately either way.

I saw it. That strike was called all night and has been called all season. As much as the Gameday PITCHf/x track might be accurate, you always have to factor in what each ump is calling as well. But, regardless of that, it most definitely was a strike. Always has been.

2nd, IMO. Opening Night's walk-off was the best.
Sure, RZ's blast was the best but in terms of magnitude tonight's clutch 2 out hit by NJ will hopefully be the big hit that will propel us and get us back on track.
