WOW! What a finish - we're up 6-5 in the 9th, Brad Lidge gets 2 quick outs, then gets ahead of Jereny Hermida 0-2. He walks him. Then he gets ahead of Miguel Cabrera 0-2. He singles through the left side. Then he gets ahead of Josh Willingham 0-2. Willingham works it back to 3-2, hits a little bloop ground ball past the mound and Adam Everett BAREHANDS it and throws to Berkman to get Willingham by a step!!! YEAH!!!

Whew. Chad Qualls gave up the 5th run, Wheeler looked great, and Lidge made me damn nervous, but it's a win.

Man, that entire game after the first was nerve-racking. It's never great to have a big lead and sit by as the other team slowly chips away at it.

Good game to finally get the jitters out. Berkman, Wilson get their first homers, and Mo looked good, drawing walks like a madman. Jason Lane, always a slow starter, needs to get his act together. I think he'll be fine.. just give him some time. Munson sure had an ivisible bat today... I think I counted 12 swings-and-misses.
