NOT SPECTACULAR MOUND PRESENCE TODAY
French gave up a lot of hits (NINE) in FIVE innings allowing THREE runs, ONE walk and ZERO K’s. The “W’s” (Wilhelmsen and Wright) continued to cruise through spring and the “P’s” (Pauley and Patterson) each gave up ONE run (Patterson’s coming in the 10th as the winning run for the Rangers)
OFFENSE EARLY SPARK AND THEN A FIZZLE
Figgy hit his first homer of the spring in the first inning with Ichiro on base. Bradley singled, moved to second when Cust grounded out and scored on Langerhans single. Then the lull began, as only TWO player reached base (and NONE scored) until Seager homered in the 8th to tie the game at four.
DEFENSE LOOKING SOLID (even the backups)
Heard most of the game on the radio today (a rarity) and the guys seemed pretty pumped about the D. Only ONE double play, but Moore recorded a pick-off and Josh Wilson made some nifty plays at 2B.
