Eric for Eric
Despite Eric Stults’ great game yesterday, more pitching is needed right now so he was optioned back to Triple-A and Eric Hull was recalled. He’s with the team in Houston right now. Takashi Saito should be arriving in Houston tonight and I still don’t have any sort of update yet medically, but once we do, I’ll pass it along or it will surely be in Ken Gurnick’s notebook.
Here’s the lineup:
Kent, 2B (has reached base in 33 straight games, the longest streak in MLB in 2007)
Nomar, 3B (birthday boy, along with Kuo, Stan Johnston and the late Pee Wee Reese and Don Drysdale)
