Dbacks Win in Spite of Second Straight Bullpen Blowup

This is getting old.

After another outstanding performance by an Arizona Diamondbacks starter, on this night Max Scherzer, the bullpen came in and almost blew another one.  However they managed to defeat the San Diego Padres 6-5 in spite of themselves.  It was close though.  Real close.  The Padres Kevin Kouzmanoff sent a ride to deep right center field with a runner on third in the ninth only to fly out and help the Dbacks snap the Padres 10 game winning streak.

The kid Scherzer was just outstanding.  Not only did he strike out 10 at the plate, he also had 2 RBI with a double and single.  He did it all.  Too bad he can’t go the distance everytime out to keep the bullpen out of the game.  Aye.  Let’s just replace all of them and send up a whole new bullpen from Reno and Mobile.  Can’t be any worse than what we got now.

Tomorrow Billy Buckner goes up against Jake Peavy. Enough said.

This is getting old.
