ERV Boxscore for May 19, vs. Milwaukee

Mission accomplished. We did exactly what we needed to do this homestand, and are now set up to make up ground on the Playoff Pace (see sidebar) on the road: just 5-4 on the trip allows us to pickup a game, and that is eminently possible.

I was at the game, and am now 4-0 at RFK. Livan really knows how to pitch; more correctly, he knows when to pitch. Today against Bill Hall with runners on 2nd & 3rd, Livan pitched carefully, essentially walking him on purpose midway through the at bat so he could get to weaker hitters. It worked.

ERV Win: Castilla
ERV Loss: Jenkins

3 Most Valuable Plays:
(1) Jeff Cirillo grounding into a DP, 8th inning (-2.35)
(2) Geoff Jenkins popping up in the 9th inning (-1.83)
(3) Vinny Castilla's double in the 4th (1.78)
