After 3 Years, Pennies From Heaven Routine Is A Winner!

Segway-riding pitcher Chris Capuano made his second major league start of the 2010 season and earned his first win since May 7, 2007.

5 innings pitched, 3 hits, 1 ER, 1BB, 4 SO. All that on 65 pitches, 37 for strikes, not a bad night. The other pitches? Those are balls! (except for the hits)

Some credit should be given to the bullpen which managed to preserve Cappy's win. Including John Axford who decided to make it a little interesting in the 9th (anyone think Cappy would have ripped off his mustache if he'd blown it?).

After 30 appearances without recording a "W", a 13 game losing streak, two Tommy John surgeries, and a number of hurdles that had to be overcome on his road to recovery, I can honestly say that I'm happy for the guy.
