Game Sixty-Two Open Thread: 13 June 2007



4-5, 5.19

3-6, 5.68


Things to watch for this game:
  1. Albert Pujols and Scott Rolen have historically just teed off on Odalis Perez: Albert’s career line off of him is .647/.714/1.647 (not a typo) with five HR. Scottie has hit for a paltry .429/.529/.929 with two HR.
  2. As mentioned by several in today’s morning thread, Wainwright seems to have been getting on track recently: he hasn’t given up more than four runs in a start since the 15th of May. Perhaps a match-up against the Royals is exactly what he needs.
