got to be the last straw for Dan Kolb! Is he trying to blow saves? I never played organized baseball, but I feel like my control is as good as his.
Update: Additional thought-I think that even though Sosa was ready in the bullpen, Kolb stayed in the game because Bobby didn't want to use bullpen even more had Sosa preserved the tiegame and gone to extra innings.
That game had a postseason feeling.
Andruw Jones was fooled on a pitch as he geared for a fastball, adjusted in the middle of a breaking pitch, and hit it out of the park one-handed. In spacious Petco Park, no less.
Smoltz was outstanding again for the second straight start, but again got a no-decision.
