Showdown: Game 30

No matter what happened in todays game, the point of today was the showdown for the fifth rotation spot. The combatants: El Duque vs the Big Pelf.
In the first corner, pitching 5 innings El Duque:
5.0 IP, 4 H, ER, BB, 2K, 6.75 ERA
In the second corner, going in 3.2 IP, Pelfrey:
3.2 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 2 K
So based on today, El Duque won out the fifth rotation spot. Pelfrey had such a strong start to spring training, its a real shame that over the last two weeks he has been having mini meltdowns. In this game, he went 3.2 IP without giving up a run. Then he gave up 4 straight. He cannot stop the bleeding, and until he can, he cannot pitch in the rotation.
Reyes 2-3, 2R, 2B, 2 SB (6)
Wright 1-2, RBI, 2BB
Church 0-4, SB
Anderson knocked in his 4th RBI in the last two days. Reyes numbers were the offense story of the day. Its good to see him take 2 bases in the same game, because thats what we hope to see all season long.
