NEWBERG REPORT PLUS — May 1, 2008

 

Sidney
Ponson last won a big league game on May 1, 2007, one year ago today.

Since that
date, Zack Greinke has gone 9-4, 2.76.

And yet,
today, Sir Sidney was better.  He fired
eight brilliant innings, scattering six singles and two walks, punching out
five and inducing a pair of double plays. 
Working swiftly and efficiently (a tidy 108 pitches), Ponson earned the 2-1
victory on the anniversary of his last.

If this
were a hockey game, the Aruba native would have skated out as the game’s number
one star, flanked by Ramon Vazquez, whose single and decisive sixth-inning home
run made him a lifetime 3 for 5 hitter off Greinke, and Ian Kinsler, whose
leadoff homer in the first staked Texas to an early lead.  

The flight
to Oakland is
going to be a good one.
