7 runs in 2/3 of an inning isn’t exactly a confidence builder for your last start of the spring…
Jason walked the first batter on 4 pitches (never a good sign) and ended up with 40 pitches, only 24 for strikes. He said after the game that he felt fine and really had no reason for his horrible outing other than “just one of those days” – said they were hitting good pitches and bad pitches.
Steve Delabar had his first rough outing and Charlie Furbush gave up his first ER of the spring.
On the pitching bright side – the two Shawns…
Camp and Kelley combined for 5.1 IP – 4H – 1ER – 0BB – 2K
Even though Kelley took the loss, the fact that he was able to pitch 3 full was encouraging
And, look, the M’s have bats!
I think they’d take 12 hits, 5 walks and 7 runs everyday and twice on Sunday!
- Ichiro, Montero and Seager all with homers (Jesus and Kyle back-to-back to tie the game at 7)
- Figgy picked up where he left off in the rain delay with 2 more hits (including a RBI triple)
- Smoak was 3-3 with 2 walks (now the camp leader in OBP at .500!)
Sounds like the D was pretty impressive today…
- Ackley to Smoak DP
- Outfield assist for Figgy
- Gold Glove play for Ryan
