John Patterson, RHP (0-0, 9.00)

"The Big Nasty" got off to a slow start as he gave up four runs in four innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Wednesday. It didn't help that he was playing with a forearm injury. Patterson hopes to redeem himself on Monday as he faces the Astros for the third time in his career. He is 1-0 with a 2.63 ERA against them.



Wandy Rodriguez, LHP (1-0, 5.40)

Rodriguez earned the win in his first start of the season, allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits over five innings in a 6-5 win over the Nationals on April 5. Rodriguez walked four, but he induced three double plays in the first three frames to keep the damage to a minimum. The left-hander admitted feeling fatigued in his final frame, although he threw only 82 pitches in this outing.

I'm glad that Byrd's starting again - he plays his butt off, and if for no other erason deserves some starts.  That clutch double the other night did not suck, either...

Poor call by the ump on the 3-1 pitch, calling it a strike.  And of course Nick pops out foul on the next pitch that shouldn't have been.

Base hit for Zimmerman.
