I'm of the opinion that when you're down by 5, and you have the bases loaded with no outs and you're 4,5 and 6 hitters fail to bring in a run, then that is pretty much the ballgame. With that said, as I'm putting in this post, we've yet to complete the 6th, and I'm saying it's safe to say, the streak ends at 8. Not a bad run that started against teams they were looking up at in the Wild Card standings - simply put these were quality wins.
Next up is Baltimore. When you play a last place team, you need to beat them like a last place team - let's hope there is no letdown in this series.
How fitting that the Goose goes into the Hall on the week of the 25th anniversary of the Pine Tar Game.
