Nine innings pitched.
No walks. Four strikeouts.
Not enough for a win.
What can you say? Yeah, Doc Halladay is not an arm to be trifled with, but THIS is the vaunted Detroit offense? Bondo pitches his HEART, SOUL, and SPLEEN out, and gets nothing in return?
This was a ridiculously good outing from Bondo, especially to see how thoroughly he recovered from that first inning homerun, and I hate, HATE the fact that the team just piddled it away like so much doggy urine. Wee wee wee down the drain in the sidewalk. We just can’t afford to waste pitching of that caliber; no one can.
Urgh. I can’t even say anything else about this game, I’m so thoroughly disgusted by it. Poor, poor Bondo.
