Opening Day Part Deaux

The home-standing Cubs takes a 5-4 win over the visiting Brewers. Willie Izquierdo kept the Brewers guessing until tiring in the 8th as the Cubs broke out with 4 runs to tie the game. The venerable Joey Tracy pinch hit in the bottom of the ninth ended the game.

St Louis scored early and held on for a 4-3 win over Cleveland as miscues almost cost them the game.

Houston invaded Charlotte and used their usual long ball to their advantage in a 5-3 win.

Salem downs Frisco 4-1 in 11 innings. After a near disasterous first inning by Salem, pitchers settled down on both sides as the fans fell sleep before games end.

Toronto invaded Tiger stadium and came from behind to win a 3-2 decision. Detroit scored 2 in the first but just couldn't get anything going after. Toronto eked out single runs in the sixth on a strange inside the park homer, in the seventh on a wild pitch and a close call at home in the ninth (even replay analysts aren't sure as too much dust was kicked up to tell).

Atlanta filibustered Washington 10-6, as each side belted 13 hits but the Senators just couldn't get things done when needed. Sounds oh so familiar.

In the revenge game in Little Rock, Tampa Bay erased a 3-2 deficit for a 5-3 win in the top of the ninth. Little Rock had a chance for the win in the bottom of the inning but a little lame pop up ended a Head come back as usual.

The ancient Slob, Dan Hitchcock, was the story in San Diego as the Padres were out foxed for 6 innings but held a 1-0 lead. Denny Matheson's 2-run blast in the top of the seventh was the deciding factor in the Slobs 2-1 win.
