Drew Huthchison pitched great. John Gibbons left him in to clean up his own seventh-inning mess and it actually paid off for once. Dustin McGowan pitched great. Casey Janssen pitched great. Jose Bautista reminded us of why we missed him so much when he was out of the lineup. Melky and Edwin produced a couple of nice insurance runs in the ninth. The stadium was packed. The day was beautiful. The crass overtures toward our patriotic heartstrings were wholly appropriate. Baseball smiled at us and reminded us of the good days — y`know: May.
I can live with that.
