I'm surprised this didn't already get a mention here. Yesterday, Tony Gwynn Jr collected his first big league hit, a double. 24 years ago to the day, his father collected HIS first hit, also a double.

from's game story:

Tony Gwynn Jr. had a pinch-hit double in the Milwaukee ninth for his first major league hit. His father's first major league hit -- also a double -- came exactly 24 years earlier to the day, on July 19, 1982, for the Padres.

The younger Gwynn received a standing ovation when his accomplishment was announced between innings.

"He hit a double, too," said the rookie outfielder, who was told before the game that it was the anniversary of his dad's first hit.

God bless the men of 2nd Bn, 127th Inf, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army Nat'l Guard...good luck, and come home soon.

And of course, he's not the only second-generation superstar on the Brew Crew...thanks to Prince Fielder, product of the Tigers great Cecil.

But after giving up that game-winning hit yesterday vs. the Giants, Turnbow got on "The Jim Rome Show" today. C'mon, Jungle Karma...

Curt and Randy are doing almost as bad, and in all three of their cases run support isn't helping either. It could be something major, or it could be just a slow start aggravated by the rest of the teams trying to get their hits in while they can.
