Grand exit

CraiggersLike the saying goes, Craig Biggio knows how to party.

Or something like that.

On the same day he announced he was going to hang up the cleats at season’s end, Craiggers hit a two-out grand slam to secure a come-from-behind win over the Dodgers.

Although not many people would consider leaving Biggio off their Hall of Fame ballots, he’s kinda flown under the radar during his career, no?

I mean, he doesn’t do any Vitamin Water ads, so how awesome can he really be?

Dodgers 4, Astros 7: Jeff Kent’s homer was the highlight for L.A., one of four teams in the N.L. West that is 5-5 in its last 10. Dodgers starter Mark Hendrickson gave up 3 earned in 5 innings pitched, but then Rudy Seanez (not to be confused with Olmedo Saenz) gave up the granny.

Braves 7, Giants 5: Tim Hudson was cruising into the 9th, looking for his 10th career shutout, when Bob Wickman entered the game. Wickman has blown five saves this year, three in games that Hudson started. He didn’t disappoint last night, tossing away the save and helping four additional Braves pitchers get playing time. Edgar Renteria ruined all the fun with a two-run double in the 13th. Boo. UPDATE: Bonds didn’t do anything. Again.

Mariners 3, Rangers 4: Seattle continues to suck, and has now lost 5 in a row. The M’s are also 3-7 in their last 10. Jarrod Washburn did about as well as you could ask Jarrod Washburn to do, giving up 3 earned in 5.2 IP.

“We’re not playing well right now and we know it,” Washburn said.

Good, so does everyone else.
