We all gathered around to watch what to me was Pedro's first 'real' start. He was at home in Philadelphia and facing the Arizona Dbacks. A storm that approached the stadium was described as being 'from the Wizard of Oz' type of storm the way it looked, changed those plans of Pedro's start completely although he did get 3 innings in before the rain storm.
Tweets from the stadium described the storm as fierce from the press booth, there were several twitter messages that told of heavy thunder and lightning right over the stadium. In a surreal atmosphere following the storm it was Jamie Moyer returning to the mound to get a 'long relief' appearance.
Jamie turned in one of the best outtings by a Phillies pitcher so far this season. Jamie pitched 6.0 innings only giving up 2 hits and no runs with 5 strikeouts. Poetic that Jamie had such a great start. He certainly went out there and threw a great game. I would have loved to have seen Jamie start the rest of the season. Maybe he'll still get that chance.
