Today was Charlie Furbush's turn in the rotation, and he pitched fairly well in his 5.1 innings of work, allowing a mere 2 runs on 7 hits (one a homer) and 2 walks with 5 strikeouts. Cale Iorg was 1-4 with a double and 3 strikeouts. Scott Sizemore was at second today, as well.
Lets not talk about how Brooks Brown got shelled. Lets talk instead about how Robert Waite stepped up in relief, throwing five innings of one-hit, one-run (unearned) ball with five strikeouts. The hitting wasn't quite up to par however, and Erie's attack was led by the newly promoted John Murrian (2-for-4 with a double) and the old standby Bryan Pounds (1-4 with a triple).
