Game 3 of 3
Nate Robertson starts off with 4 very strong innings for the Marlins, but blows his cool wide open in a 5R 5th inning. Meanwhile, Correia starts off struggling but regains his composure and gets the decision. Every Padre except Kyle Blanks, Kevin Correia, and Will Venable gets a hit...but only one each.
SD 6 6 0
FLA 4 10 0
Fans of tape measure HRs, there were 2 "blue seater" blasts in this game, courtesy of Jorge Cantu (FLA), then Yorvit Torrealba (SD).
Having never seen Clay Hensley (FLA) at work, I was very very impressed with his outing. Luke Gregerson (SD), as always, worked quickly and efficiently...especially when he stole an excellent drag-bunt single from Cameron Maybin
The bland commentary by Rich Waltz and Tommy Hutton of Fox Sports Florida slipped a gear, on briefly, during this discourse that occurred just before David Eckstein (SD) ripped out a bases-clearing 3R double to signal the end of Robertson's work:
WALTZ: ...He (Robertson) has a good work ethic...
HUTTON: Well, he needs to work his way out of this!
There were plenty of complaints by the home commentators over Brian O'Nora's strike zone.
I scored this game 2/21/11.
