The boys get lucky again

Got through a two-game series at AZ last week without having to face either Brandon Wood or the disabled Randy Johnson. Now, they get a three-game set with the Jints without having to face either Barry Zito or Matt Cain. When things are falling your way, things are falling your way. However, they DO have to contend tonight with Matt Morris, who is off to a sizzling start (2-0, 2.00 ERA), so that’s a tall assignment in itself. … Barry Bonds enters tonight’s game 0-for-9 lifetime against Derek Lowe. … Yhency Brazoban went 1 2/3 innings in his third rehab start for Inland Empire, giving up four runs that were all unearned and striking out three. … Jonathan Meloan who might be in the big leagues by now if the Dodgers didn’t have such an airtight pen, went two scoreless innings for Double-A Jacksonville, getting the win in a 5-2, 10-inning victory over West Tenn last night. Meloan now had a 0.79 ERA. … D.J. Houlton pitched six solid innings for Las Vegas last night, but wound up with no decision. He’s 2-0 with a 1.99 ERA. Don’t be surprised if he gets called up at some point during the season. … Perfect day at the yard, cloudless sky and the San Gabriels are visible, so come on out if you don’t have plans.
