Rod Barajas: RC's Enemy Number One...
Stop pitching to this man.
RC watched tonight's game, which was spoiled by two more homers off the bat of Rod Barajas, and there's not a whole lot to say. Zack Greinke pitched well, and the combo of Andy Sisco and Ambiorix Burgos didn't. The Royals staged a miracle comeback in the bottom of the ninth inning, capped by Mark Teahen's fourth hit of the game -- a three-run double -- but Barajas came up in the tenth inning and promptly dispatched a low Mike MacDougal slider into the left field seats.
Luis Cota finished his season with a mediocre performance. Cota got a no-decision in Burlington's loss today, with a line of: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K. He finished the season with a 4.01 ERA in 148 IP. He surrendered 143 hits while walking 63 and striking out 137. It's definitely a season he can build on.
