If Juan Pierre were a carpenter

Juan Pierre wanted to build a house. He came to work Tuesday and laid a foundation for the best house he's ever built. It was a fine foundation; strong, deep, well-made.

Stepping back to look at his work, he decided to quit while he was ahead.

1. Grounded to second. #177.
2. Popped to second. #178.
3. Fielder's choice. "Only the speed of Juan Pierre was able to avoid the double play," says Monday. Of course, only the bat of Juan Pierre got the grounder to second in the first place. #179.
4. Grounded to second. #180.

So though Juan started this series 4-for-5, he finishes 4-for-13. His OBP is right back where hes started on Tuesday, at .307; his SLG, of course, is higher, at .329.

Pace: 550 outs.
