I'd really like to see Lackey duplicate what Masterson did last night.  And why not?  Beyond that, it looks like we've got 4 straight home games against the Padres.  We need to find a way to take advantage of this opportunity.  Three out of four is essential, a sweep would be what's truly needed right now.

Rats predicted a masterful performance from Justin last night and got it. Might we get a call for John to not lack his best stuff tonight?

Padres have been hot lately. Won 8 of their last ten and are only 6 out of the WC, despite still being 5 games under .500.

Is Taveras starting again. He now has 137 at bats, he is averaging an extra base hit every 19.5 at bats and he scores a run every 17 at bats.

Yuck - we might not get a hit! 

Now watch though, we'll go out and put 8 on the board.

Maybe...we have been cutting against the grain this week...Wainwright losing and Masterson being masterful.  Perhaps Bourjos' speed will be a factor on the bases tonight.  

But honestly, my first thought was similar to your first thought.

I guess the one bright spot might be that our normally weak bench is a little bit stronger tonight. biggrin

We need to win 3 of 4 here against an inferior team with our top 3 pitchers going. Tonight's match up is very favorable, so let's take care of business.

Lackey looks really sharp so far. Sugar Shane saved him with a great catch at the wall in the first inning, though.

Well, our lineup paid dividends in the top of the first. I think Robinson snared one that would've eluded Taveras.

Wow, some great defense out there. Peralta makes a nice play to throw to 3B on a grounder to the left side with the runner running from second. Adams with a diving stop for the third out.

Rough 6th inning for Lackey. Command was off and so was his mind. Game tied now.

7 innings, 2 runs. That's what Lackey was brought in to do. Can't ask for much more.

It's up to the offense to win the game now.
