The glow from Monday's gritty win sure didn't last long, did it? Yikes. If there's something to be taken from this game, it's Livan Hernandez. Not sure how long he can float on this cloud, but he did strike out Albert Pujols. I could have sworn that Pujols was going to hit 900 ft worth of home runs last night.
