The penultimate home game. A loss tonight ensures a .500-or-worse record. Two losses tonight clinches a losing record.

It's Homer vs. Bud. Maybe I'm being narrow-minded, but these are not names for pitchers. I can't help but imagine a former Classics major from Valparaiso, IN, and a bar-fly whose sister is Christina Applegate.
