Game 65 Open Thread -- June 8, 2008

Wandy Rodriguez is a pretty tough customer. We roughed him up pretty good about a week and a half ago but that was his first start coming off the DL. Over last year and his first 34 IP this year, he’s given up fewer H than IP, has a BB/9 of 2.99 and has averaged 7.73 K/9. Pretty stout! He’s also always been much better in the Juice Box than on the road – career 4.25 ERA at home vs. 5.82 on the road. Last year the difference was 2.94 at home and 6.37 on the road and it’s a trend that has continued over his first 6 starts this year. If we’re going to win another series against the Astros, we’re going to have our work cut out for us. The good news is that Lohse has been outstanding of late – yielding just 1 BB, 1 HR, and 4 ER over his last 23 IP. Could be a pitchers’ duel today.
