I almost couldnt believe this and it hurts that it is for real. Astros starting pitcher Jason Jennings just gave up 11 earned runs in the top of the first inning to the Padres. I cant even remember or think of another major league pitcher that has given up this many runs in just .2 innings pitched. Mark McLemore was brought in with 2 outs in the top of the first inning to bail out Jennings. I think this is gonna really hurt Jennings confidence next time he takes the mound and what I dont get is why Garner let him stay out their that long. Anyways the Astros will get a big test now on their bullpen and this is just coming a day after the Astros traded away reliever Dan Wheeler to the Devil Rays for 3rd baseman Ty Wiggington. This game is currently in the top of the 3rd with the Padres leading 12-0. Houston we have a problem.
