It may not be better in baseball to be lucky than good, but
it doesn’t hurt at all to mix in a little luck.

 

By the way, Tommy Hunter, following a workmanlike effort today,
has been optioned back to Oklahoma City,
and righthander Guillermo Moscoso has reportedly been recalled from Frisco to
join the bullpen for Game Two, which is minutes from getting underway.  Moscoso, who would make his big league debut
if he gets any work before returning to the farm, is already on the 40-man
roster.
