Julian Tavarez Rocks My Sox

So apparently the combination of extremely good starting pitching and home run hitting will win you a ballgame. Who would have thought? Tavarez last night was outstanding. A complete game with only one run allowed. He has been way, way above and beyond expectations as a starter. He was given one or two starts because we were running out of options, and he took the opportunity and ran with it. He seems to be having so much fun out there starting. And he helped his team stay in the playoff race for one more day. In the past two games, our starting pitching has given up only one run in 17 innings pitched. Incredible. We are hanging by a thread, but we are still in it. And Tavarez clearly realized this.
