Team Pitching: 7(7) R(ER), 9H, 2BB, 6K, 64% strikes, 122 pitches thrown
Carlos Carrasco got the win thanks to a high-scoring offense and a mediocre pitched outing falling on the same night. Carrasco went 6 innings and gave up 5 runs on 8 hits and a walk. He did record 5 strikeouts and when you consider he got through those 6 innings (28 TBF) on only 87 pitches (14.5 P/IP -or- 3.1 P/BF), you realize that the Bats' bats were off their shoulders early and often. Consider the following: 1 BB, 1HBP 5K, 8H were recorded on 62 pitches (4.1 P/BF). The 13 outs that were created on balls put in play were made on a grand total of 25 pitches (1.9 P/BF).
Josh Judy came in and gave up a homer after a walk, but avoided any further troubles. Joe Smith pitched a ROOGY-esque performance by inducing contact and burning up the infield. He required 8 pitches to retire the side in the 9th which netted him the save.
Team Hitting: 10 R, 14H, 6XBH, 4BB, 6SO, 2SB
