"Our team's deep, man. When Ryan's not in there, I mean, it matters. But we've got guys that can fill those spots pretty adequately."

But a big three run eighth is enough: Maybe Prince Fielder should've been given a chance to wear the Silver Elvis wig after the game after butchering Adam Kennedy's game-winning "single"?
Good stuff from Lannan (7 IP, 7H, 2 ER, 3BB, 5 K, 1HR, 14-2 groundouts-flyouts).
More gas on the fire from Blowtorch Brian Bruney; a save by Capps with an assist from Burnett in the 9th.
Baseball Jesus decided he didn't want to pitch at 7:05 last night in Harrisburg, so he decided to make it rain and caused a power outage at Harrisburg's Metro Bank Park. Roughly two and a half hours later, Strasburg decided he was ready to go; overpowered the New Britain Rock Cats then changed his mind 2 1/3 innings into his start and made it start raining torrentially again.
