5/5/06 Linescore of the Day: Padres Pitching Staff

  • Chan Ho Park  9 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 4 K
  • Trevor Hoffman 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
  • Alan Embree 1/3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
  • Scott Cassidy 2/3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

Chan Ho Park, who hasn’t had a season ERA under 5.46 in 5 years, pitched his heart out last night.  Too bad he couldn’t get a win for his efforts.  In the short season, Park has a 4.12 ERA.  Respectable for most pitchers… Downright fantastic for Chan Ho. 

As for the Cubs, they are languishing in a 25 inning scoreless streak.  Todd Walker is in a 1 for 14 slump.  Not to draw comparisons or wish for snow in the summer but wouldn’t be great if DLee was back now? 

Special mention goes to Mets leadoff hitter Jose Reyes who went 5 for 7 in wild one against the Braves.  In addition to the 5 safeties, Jose drew a free pass.  For all his trouble, he scored 2 runs with no ribbies.  The Mets won this one on a clutch double by David Wright in the 14th. 

I’m rambling now but was I seeing things when I saw Wright make a good play in the field?  I could have sworn he made a great catch.  By god, when I watch the Mets when Glavine pitches, I wince when the ball gets hits to DW. 

I guess even Wright has a good day in the field.

  1. BIG * as the Padre pitchers were going against the Cubbies offense!

    Also, although I agree David Wright is a butcher at the hot corner, he did make the 2005 Catch of the Year with his twisting, diving, over the shoulder barehanded catch of a pop fly. Just goes to show, even a blind nut finds a squirrel every once in a while.
