Lastings Milledge was at his explosive best when he scored from first on a single with two outs in the fifth. That’s the go-ahead run so far. That play was as much instinct as it was the product of speed.
Scoring the game-winning run from first on a single?
If I know my slang properly, I guess you’d say that’s… the bomb?
Or do I have my slang wrong?
What was really interesting was how the new wrinkles contributed: Milledge scored the winning run; Gotay had a dinger and drove in the game winner; and the pen featured Smith and Feliciano as set-up men, rather than Heilman and Mota. Very subtle, but interesting nonetheless.
Good points, Benny. Lots of ways this team will look different come September.
