ERV Boxscore for May 29, at St. Louis
Around mid-game, probably just after Johnson was caught stealing to end an inning, I started thinking things like this: "How many consecutive losses could this team suffer before Frank is fired, and would it be too much to recover from and still have a chance at a playoff spot?" But then I reminded myself that, in baseball, things can change, and change quickly. And they did, though we won in the same lean way we've been winning all year.
Looking back, we basically lost three more games than we should have on this road trip. But we can get those back at home with series wins over the Braves and Marlins. Not much breathing room, but we have a shot.

(1) Wilkerson's double in the 5th (2.75)
