Today’s box scoreBy
- Yes, yes, Eric Duncan hit the game-winner in the top of the ninth. Solomon Torres was pitching, so it wasn’t like a minor league scrub.
- Igawa showed some improvement this time out. No walks and four strikeouts in three innings, though he did allow five hits and a tater (two-run shot to Ronny Paulino). If he can keep up these strikeouts, he’s going to find some degree of success.
- Clippard: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 K; making HIS case to be the first called up.
- Haven’t seen Henn for a while, but he struck out the only batter he faced — the last one of hte game.
It should be noted that Pittsburgh didn’t exactly put out their A team — if they even have an A team. They did strike out Adam LaRoche twice, though.
