Weekend recap

OK, I sorted through all of the Bad Baseball from the weekend, so let's recap:

Friday: More struggles for the Braves bullpen against the visiting Mariners. Will Ohman recorded just two outs and allowed 5 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks.

Saturday: The Cubs scored nine runs in the fourth inning against their cross-town rival Chicago White Sox. Sox starter Jose Contreras was to blame; he allowed 9 runs on 10 hits in 3.1 innings pitched . . . The Indians exploded for six runs in the 11th inning against the Dodgers. Cory Wade and Scott Proctor did the honors, combining for 1.1 innings, 5 hits, and 6 runs . . . The Astros blew a 9th inning lead to the Rays. Doug Brocail was the losing pitcher, allowing 2 runs on 3 hits . . . Tough 7th inning for the Nationals bullpen against the visiting Rangers; Charlie Manning and Brian Sanches combined to record just 2 outs and allow 7 runs on 6 hits.

Sunday: Who knew the Royals - Giants match up would turn into a fireworks display? The two teams combined for 30 hits and 21 runs. The Royals came away on top by a score of 11-10, but I'll let you decide which of the 11 pitchers used should take the blame.
