The Epic (5.25 ERA) takes on Micah Owings (4.72 ERA) in the rubber game today in Arizona. After running his ERA to 8.00 after five starts, Meche has slowly whittled it down to 5.25, thanks to a 3.90 ERA in his last nine starts. This will be Gil's second career start in Arizona.
Thanks to NYRoyal and kcisbetterthanstlateverything for posting diaries on Aviles. Last night, right before I fell asleep, I thought I should really get up early today and do an Aviles post... That didn't happen.
