Game 159: D'Backs 8 Pirates 0

And if I had to boil 2007 down to one game, I think it might be the one in which Bob Melvin decides that even though he's in the heat of a pennant race, it would be OK to start Micah Owings (ERA+ of 105) instead of Brandon Webb (defending Cy Young winner, ERA+ 156) and the end result is still a shutout of the Pirates. Making average pitchers look like Brandon Webb; that's what we do and we do it well.
