Back at Potomac. Another HBP last night. Elite.

On the wrist, too.  He shook it around a good amount but stayed in and stole two bases - one on the first pitch, the second on a really well-executed delayed steal the next time around.  He needs to learn to turn the other way on those inside fastballs that are going to hit him: he turned right into the pitch, and he should count himself lucky that the guy was throwing mostly 88-90, not 95.  Did pretty well in CF despite losing a ball in the sun.  At the plate, there wasn't much to speak of.  Besides the HBP he had 2 walks (I think one was 4 pitches and the other 5), a bunt single to the 1B side, and a strikeout that shouldn't have counted (foul tip that hit the ground before the catcher gloved it). 

(Also, not last "night" - it was unfortunately a day game.)
