Whitesell’s Double the Difference So Far

By Scott Allen

Josh Whitesell was recalled today after Chad Tracy was placed on the Disabled List.  That was news to my ears with his one hit and zero RBI after his first stint in Phoenix.

Tonight might be something different.  Whitesell had a double and two RBI in his first at bat tonight against the Los Angeles Dodgers.  Nice to see him finally come through.  It could have been more had Stephen Drew not got caught napping after a double.  He was safe, but was called out.  Dbacks broadcaster Mark Grace thought he was out.  Nope – wrong Gracie.  Man, I see him too many times pro Dbacks opponent.  He needs to start towing the company line.  I love Gracie, but he is starting to get on my nerves.

Dbacks starter Billy Buckner went 6 innings of shutout ball.  Let’s see if the bullpen can hold a 2-0 lead in the 7th.  I’m guessing doubtful.  After a 2-2 series against the Atlanta Braves this past weekend, the Dbacks need to start this seven game road trip with a win.
