Courtesy of loyal reader Alan Hirsch, may I present Down on the Farm for Friday…
Joba got lit up, with Brian Cashman in attendance. He pitched 4.2 innings and gave up 9 hits (3 homers) and 7 earned runs. In the 2nd half of the doubleheader, Alan Horne did the same, lasting 2.2 innings and giving up 3 earned runs. Maybe the erratic schedule, with the rehabbing Hughes & Krastens did in the Trenton pitchers? Weâ€™ll see what happens to Joba next outing.
Thoughts of Austin Jackson cooling off are premature, as he went 3-4 with a homer and a double. Just when weâ€™re ready to write off Eric Duncan, heâ€™s starting to hit. Duncan hit a home run in his second consecutive night.
