Not a great effort so far; they are barely making this young starter work with one quick inning after another. Run support has to improve if they are not going to loss a 4th straight to a much weaker team.

Yeah. But then again, neither team had much luck with their offense. Thankfully, we pulled it out with the Grichuk HR.
Whew….I cringed when I heard that Choate was the only pitcher left. Good thing MM didn’t put him in.
