    Nice to see Masterson get back on track….and Pestano and Rogers giving up just one hit to finish them off. Now let’s win 9 more in a row!

    hey, we needed that win badly. still though, not sure i’d call it back on track when he walked 4 guys.

  • Dee P

    Very true. However he offset that with only 3 hits. Hey, whenever Masterson’s WHIP is 1.00?…..I’ll take it 35 times a year.
