I know it was a really bad performance, but that's a little harsh don't you think?

Luis Exposito was catching Kevin Millwood against Durham earlier this season when the since-departed righty started doing something curious. Whenever Exposito called for a pitch the scouting report had decreed to be the weakness of a hitter, Millwood would shake him off.
Exposito would insist. Millwood would keep shaking him off.
“It was the beginning of the game, and he didn’t want to go to the weaknesses,” Exposito said. “He said he’d rather go to the weaknesses when it counts, when they’ve got people on base.
“I never would have thought of doing something like that myself.”
As much as the younger pitchers on the Pawtucket pitching staff have benefited this season from the presence of veterans like Millwood, Scott Atchison, Brandon Duckworth and Randy Williams, so too has Exposito.
A Red Sox organization that has followed the lead of Jason Varitek for almost 15 years demands that its catchers make defense, not hitting, their priority. Exposito has hit just .239 with a .295 on-base percentage this season, but the strides he’s made behind the plate are unmistakable.
“You have veteran guy and you have young guys coming up, and he’s handled them all,” reliever Michael Bowden said. “He has an individualized approach with each pitcher, and it works. He knows how to handle the older guys, and he knows how to handle the younger guys. He takes initiative out there.”
Said PawSox pitching coach Rich Sauveur, “He can catch up in the big leagues right now.”
The PawSox have dropped 6 of their last nine games, including Wednesday's 3-1 defeat in Syracuse. The Chiefs have beaten Pawtucket 5 times in the last 6 days. Starter Greg Smith turned in his second straight excellent outing for the Sox.
The lefty gave up one run in six innings. In the seventh, Junichi Tazawa surrendered a two run homer to Seth Bynum. Tazawa (1-1) took the loss, allowing his first runs of the season in a PawSox uniform.
Winner Tommy Milone earned the victory and he was impressive. Milone (11-6) allowed one run in 7 innings. He scattered 4 hits and struck out 8 batters. Lars Anderson provided the lone offensive bright spot with a solo home run in the second inning.
While the Portland Sea Dogs toil through this losing season, one upbeat notion was that the team kept improving as the summer wore on.
After a dismal May (6-25), the Sea Dogs had winning records in June and July.
But now it's August and the defeats have gone back to piling up, including a 9-3 setback Wednesday to the Harrisburg Senators at Hadlock Field.
The Sea Dogs, who are 8-15 in August, lost their season-worst seventh straight and completed an 0-6 homestand.
And while postseason dreams were extinguished long ago, Portland (53-77) was officially eliminated from playoff consideration.
The Sea Dogs will fly out today for an eight-game trip to Reading, then Harrisburg. They will return Sept. 2 for a four-game homestand to finish the season.
With 12 games to go, Portland must go 8-4 to avoid the worst record in franchise history. The inaugural team in 1994 finished with a 60-81 record.
In Wednesday's game, the Sea Dogs hammered out 10 hits to Harrisburg's 12, including solo home runs from new catcher Jeff Howell and shortstop Ryan Dent.
And Portland's batters were back to working the count, getting quality at-bats. But in the clutch the Sea Dogs faltered, leaving 13 on base, going 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position.
"We had opportunities but we definitely struggled with runners in scoring position. That was the difference," Portland Manager Kevin Boles said.
Winston-Salem's Ian Gac leads the Carolina League with 32 home runs, but he hasn't hit a single one out of Salem Memorial Ballpark in the first three games of this series.
He didn't need to Wednesday.
Gac's teammates Kyle Colligan and Mike Blanke each homered and Joe Serafin and Ryan Kussmaul combined to shut out the Salem Red Sox for a 3-0 win.
Salem (26-33, 57-71) fell to five games behind Winston-Salem (31-28, 63-66) in the Southern Division second-half race with 11 games to play. Kinston (31-27, 69-58) leads the division by a half-game over the Dash.
The Sox beat Winston-Salem in the first two games of the series, and had won eight in a row over the Dash before Wednesday.
"The last two days we played good, fundamental baseball," said Salem right fielder Bryce Brentz. "Tonight, we just didn't get timely hits."
Salem starter Manny Rivera allowed only four hits and two walks through six innings, but one of those hits was Colligan's solo shot over the left-field wall to lead off the fifth inning.
Anatanaer Batista, fresh off the disabled list, came in for the seventh inning and was crushed by Blanke's leadoff homer. Colligan singled and eventually scored on a throwing error by Batista and an RBI single by Daniel Wagner for the 3-0 lead.
"He doesn't command the fastball; he was up in the zone," Salem manager Bruce Crabbe said. "He doesn't command his breaking pitch."
Entering the sixth inning with a no-hitter, Madison Younginer was cruising, but the Staten Island Yankees produced some opportune offense, stringing together a pair of hits with two stolen bases and two wild pitches to score three runs, en route to a win over the Lowell Spinners Wednesday night, 3-1.
Lowell (26-38) got on the board first in the fifth inning after a lead-off double by Matt Marquis. An Adalberto Ibarra ground out moved Marquis to third and Jose Garcia drove him in with an RBI single to right. Garcia would steal second and third, but Moko Moanaroa and Seth Schwindenhammer struck out to end the threat.
Through five innings Madison Younginer was unhittable, striking out four through five innings without allowing a hit.
Staten Island (40-24) would get to Younginer in the sixth however, as Nick McCoy led off the inning with a double, the Yankees first hit. A wild pitch moved McCoy to third and Mason Williams drove him home with an infield single. Williams proceeded to steal second and a tiring Younginer walked Angelo Gumbs. A fielding error by Moanaroa at first allowed Ben Gamel to reach and Williams to score and an Ibarra passed ball allowed Gumbs to score.
The Spinners were unable to mount a comeback, going silently into the night as the Yankees took the third of five games in the six-game series.
