GB&U: Who Needs the Batters?

GOOD: O! Perez?!? What got into him last night? The pitching was: meh. The hitting was: WOO-HOO!!! 3-for-3 with two RBIs, very nice. He's now hitting .313 for the season (small sample size alert). And he gets his first win to boot (6.1 IP, 4 ERs, 11 hits, 2 BBs, 5 Ks).

BAD: Need we say it at this point? Austin Kearns hitless in five trips, stranding five base runners. Kearns was the only starter without a hit. The damage could (should?) have been worse.

UGLY: Elijah Dukes whiffed in his only plate appearance, pinch hitting in the 9th. He's 0-for-12 since being activated.

NEXT GAME: Tuesday against the Mets at Shea. John Lannan (3-3, 3.40) v. John Maine (4-2, 3.00).
