I wish you were Russell Martin

Pierre goes 0-4 with a walk and a run scored. Russell Martin hits like gangbusters behind him. Here's the breakdown:

1. Tapped to short, out 6-3. Out #5 of the year.

2. Ball four! Congratulations, Juan, on reaching base for the first time as a Dodger! And congratulations on your first run scored, coming around from first on Russell Martin's double! The OutWatch is truly happy for you and encourages you to keep it up.

3. ...but instead, you bunted. You almost beat it out! Almost being the operative word. 1-3, Out #6 of the year.

Time out to congratulate Pierre on his nice catch in the fifth.

4. After an unlikely walk by the pitcher, Randy Wolf, Juan comes up with the bases loaded. C'mon Juan, prove me wrong! ....but no. You hit it up the middle, J.J. Hardy grabbed it, threw to first, and you are out, 6-3, for your 7th out of the year. That one is painful.

5. Pop out to the third baseman. Out #8.

Why can't you be more like that nice Martin kid? He went 3-5 with a single, double, and a homer.
