Bucs snap skid

Matt didn't watch the final innings of the game, thus you are left with a lackluster recap by yours truly.

Tom Gorzelanny and his 1,000,000.76 spring training ERA entered this season with many doubters wanting him down at AAA. Well, look at his first few starts. Gorz shuts the door again, picking up a 7-5 win over the Dodgers.

Adding to Gorz's performance was Chris Duffy, who is still managing to make me look like an ass (I still prefer McLouth). Duffy had three hits, scored three runs and stole two bases. Kudos to finally realizing he's fast enough to swipe second base.

And LaRoche's bat wakes up, sort of. Only one hit and it came with no one on base, but still a home run. Sigh.

Torres rebounds to save a game. Bucs back on winning track.

3 stars of the game:

1 star - Salomon Torres (For not giving up the lead...again.)
2 stars - Chris Duffy (A leadoff hitter who can steal and set a table. This is new.)
3 Stars - Tom Gorzelanny (Very nice.)
