Saturday morning things

Another bleah game.  Dustin Nippert looked pretty good for the first few innings, though.

Jeff Wilson says Torii Hunter saved the game by turning a Marlon Byrd two run homer into an out.  I'm not convinced it wouldn't have been a double, rather than a homer, but either way, that play was huge.  Evan Grant notes the team ERA in August has dropped from 6.25 to 5.64 over the past week, which is progress.

Vicente Padilla is heading to the disabled list.  The decision was made yesterday to d.l. Padilla and recall Kam Loe, but for whatever reason, it isn't happening until today.
