Post-Game 50 Thread: How Can Pierre Go 0-for-4 and Still Win The Game? (Dodgers 2, Cubs 1 (11))

A disgruntled (and justifably so) Cubs fan alerted me to Juan Pierre's line in the Sunday Dodgers-Cubs game, in which Pierre won the game in the bottom of the 11th with his bases-loaded hit-by-pitch (on the knee). To be fair, the ball looked like it bounced and then hit his knee, so Pierre's little quasi-kneel into the ball wasn't entirely lame. But it is funny that Pierre was the game winner after a line like this:

First inning, fly out to left.
Fourth inning, fly out to center.
Sixth inning, man on first, fly out to right.
Ninth inning, fly out to right.
11th inning, bases loaded, HBP. Ramon Martinez scores.

0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 1 LOB, 1 RBI (GW RBI).

I'm sure this was the kind of revenge Pierre was dreaming about inflicting on his former team. Dodgers 2, Cubs 1.

Nice stats. Sad thing is that he has hit all fly balls for outs which takes away his speed. I say make him bunt at every at bat to force him to run. Either that or bring up Kemp.
