For some reason, all the press leading up to this one is how Greg Maddux has been unsuccessful in his last four attempts to win #350, and not about how U-ball has been unsuccessful in his last five attempts to get career win #6. Jimenez has a 6.26 ERA in those last five starts, compared to Maddux's 5.54 ERA in his winless streak. Both these guys have been pretty bad of late, and the badness of both plays to their opponents strengths tonight. Maddux has allowed more damage via hard contact, while Jimenez has had more of a problem with walks.
I guess what I'm saying is, if you were ever to put money on the over at PETCO, this might have been a good night to do it.
