After a four game blip, the Bucs have it going again..and win one with BAD starting pitching. Good series win. I think they have won 6 of the last 7 series, if I recall correctly.

STARTER: Lincoln. I already spilled the beans here. BAD START! Just 3.1 innings, 8 hits, 4 earned runs, although the official scorer was a homer on that one. Walker should have gotten an error and a couple of those runs would have been unearned. You know what though, the guy's ERA is still just 3.82. I still think he can be a successful starter. I would leave him in the rotation for now, if it were up to me.

WIN: With 1.2 scoreless innings, Watson gets the win to go to 4-0!

STAR #3: Giving Watson the #3 star, kinda by default. He came in and cleaned up Lincoln's mess and ended up going 1.2 scoreless. I had thought about Walker or McGehee, but Walker failed to make a play which he should have, resulting in a couple of Indian runs. McGehee hit what should have been a DP, but Cabrera's boot gave the Bucs a couple runs. So Watson it is!

STAR #2: Cutch 2-5 with a double and a run.

STAR #1: Too bad I can't give Pedro ALL THREE STARS! Two HR. A double that was nearly HR #3. 3-4, 2 Runs, 6 RBI. He hit the ball unbelievably hard on both HR. As Bucfan mentioned, the time it took those balls to get out was miniscule.

Honorable Mention: The Bucs needed nearly 6 innings from the Pen to pull this one out. Hughes (2 innings, 1 run), Grilli (1 scoreless) and Hanrahan (1 scoreless) all get HMs.

I have no dispute with the stars, Animal. Did think Hughes deserves a bit of credit for going two solid innings. He gave up the run when the Buccos were up 9-4, but did not let Cleveland get back into the game with any significant offense.

And Hughes is my guy ...

I gave him an HM! I was debating between him and Watson for the #3 star.
