…watching Edwin Jackson deal all night long was nothing short of exhilarating. Even when he gave up the homer to the unlikeable Scott Rolen. Still, I put this game less on Brandon Lyon and more on the other Brandon with a four-letter last name: Inge.
Sure, he hit a homer to tie it in the ninth, but his error in the eighth got all the bad karma a-swirling.
If Lyon’s 2009 is like his ’08 in Arizona, there will be plenty of opportunities to rip into him.
Tonight, though, I hang on Inge.
