Setting the tone

Juan Pierre gets a bunt-hit on the second pitch of the game. This is how these guys are going to play the game, just as they've played games all season. Florida then executes a perfect hit-and-run - Castillo gets a bloop hit into short right which puts runners on first and third with no outs. Up comes Pudge Rodriguez, who gets a sac fly to put Florida up 1-0.
