I'm just in the door from the game. What a great time! My first win of the year is Jake Arrieta's first win in the big leagues. I'll be back with a detailed recap later, but here are a few positive bullet points to get you started:
- Arrieta struck out 6 batters in 6 innings.
- He allowed 4 hits, half as many as AJ Burnett.
- After the game he hung around on the field signing autographs
- About the pie to the face he said, "I've been waiting for that pie for three years."
- Adam Jones had a good night with two hits including a double.
- Scott Moore hit his first HR since April 2008.
