- Hunter Pence is on a nice little binge. His HR last night was his 4th in five games.
- David Robertson picked up his first save on the season since Mariano went down. He'll get the majority of chances with Rafael Soriano getting a chance every now and then.
- Yesterdays pitching matchups recommended that AJ Burnett get started on your rosters...if you didn't take that advice, you missed out on an 8 inning gem that produced only 2 earned runs, 10 K's and a game WHIP under 1.00. His opponent, Edwin Jackson, who also received my FB365 approval yesterday lasted 7 innings, struck out 5, allowed 2 earned and also provided a game WHIP under 1.00.
- Ian Kennedy, another FB365 approved pitcher yesterday, didn't fair quite so well, but giving up 2 HR's to Carlos Beltran in the first two innings, one of which was a grand slam, will do that. Final line, 7 IP, 6 earned on 6 hits and 6 K's with a couple of walks. I think everyone else would have said to start Kennedy too yesterday, so I don't feel so bad about that.
- Andrew McCutchen finally hit his first HR of the year. Not good for someone many experts were saying could challenge 30/30.
