Hey! Who Turned Out The Lights?

If you had to nitpick on Scott Feldman this year, the one thing you could say is he hasn't pitched 7 innings as yet. It looked like that was about to change today as he towed the slab against the Dodgers.

Feldman was cruising through 5 innings (57 pitches) before something inexplicable happened; the lights at the Ballpark in Arlington malfunctioned. The game was delayed an hour and a half, and by the time play had resumed, Feldman's day was done. Feldman gave up 0 runs on 3 hits, 0 BBs, and 1 K. His WHIP is 1.17. His ERA is 3.70.

Jason Marquis didn't get his 9th win tonight, but that was through no fault of his own. Marquis left the game with a 3-1 lead before Manny Corpas relinquished that lead in the 8th, got a blown save, and also the win. Go figure. Marquis went 7 innings and gave up 1 run on 7 hits, 3 BBs, and 2 Ks. Also had an RBI walk with the bases loaded. His WHIP is 1.35. His ERA is 3.77.

Josh Whitesell was 1-3 with 1 BB, 1 double, and 1 RBI against the Astros.

Kevin Youkilis was 0-3 with 3 BBs and 1 run scored against the Phillies.

Ian Kinsler was 1-4 against the Dodgers.

Ryan Braun was 0-4 against the White Sox.

Scott Schoeneweis returned to action for the D-Backs and picked up right where he left off. He pitched 2/3 of an inning of scoreless relief against the Astros. His WHIP is 1.32. His ERA is 2.38. Here's hoping the baseball diamond offers Scott some catharsis.

Was really happy to see Schoeneweis do well. You have to pull for a guy who went through what he did.

Thanks for clearing up what happened with Feldman. I read the box score and wondered why his outing was so short.

The neat thing about your blog, Josh, is that after reading for a while, these guys have become regulars for my interest and I root for them all because of your writing and observations.

Wow, that's pretty neat. Makes it all worthwhile when I hear something like that.
