Granderson hit a ball really far. With a stick. Think about it. Also, Pendleton went three scoreless. He's the new Bartolo.
Nova was bad. Three runs from the offense isn't great. What else? Losing is generally bad. Losers.
Nova attempted to explain his struggles with control after the game.
"I was distracted," explained Nova. "You know how in movies you see ninjas all the time? All the time. They show up, assassinate the master of rival schools. They're there. But you never pick up a newspaper and read, 'A man was killed in Brooklyn last night. Ninjas are suspected.' Never. You never hear about ninjas in the news. It makes me think they're probably not real. How am I supposed to pitch if that's true?!"
The Wasted Effort
Granderson hit a home run last night in the eighth. Too bad his effort had already been wasted by Nova in the fifth. At least the babies get more cash.
