Word of advice to anyone who has Brooks Conrad over for dinner. Don’t let him hold your fancy China. He might drop it. Conrad’s second error in as many innings leads to the game’s first run.
Mike Fontenot, who is in the for the Kung Fu Panda, injured Jason Heyward (and the general morale) with a leadoff triple to right field. Heyward had the ball but it popped out of his glove and he was shaken up after he slammed into the wall. Fontenot scored when Conrad treated Cody Ross’s pop up behind first like it had been breaded in used kitty litter.
Despite another walk, Hudson limits the damage to one run, but his pitch count is already in the 40’s.
