When did you guys post this? I knew last night that it was Cingrani and Surkamp (aka RandoMinorLeagureWhoI'mBettingtheFarmAgainst) in Game 1! Couldn't wait to bet four units against him today. That being said, Cingrani has gotten lucky, and is not pitching as well as I had expected. Against a better team, Cingrani might've given up 6 by now.
