ERV Boxscore for April 8 at Houston
I listened to the first inning on the way to pick up dinner, and arrive home glum, convinced that there was no way, just no way, we give Oswalt 5 runs and win the game. But by the time the kids are in bed and I come back to the game, we're up 9-7, thanks to Chad Qualls doing his best Jason Bergmann impersonation. Un-be-liev-able. I'm starting to get the same feelings about this team as last year's -- just when they look truly awful, they manage to do something remarkable. Let's hope this ride continues.
ERV Win: Byrd (50%), Soriano (50%)
ERV Loss: Qualls
Three Most Valuable Plays:
(1) Soriano's double in the 7th (3.21)
