I can only blame Shawn, with qualifications, for this outing because I don't know whether his stuff was bad or he couldn't get strikes called.

At the beginning of the game, it was obvious that Shawn wasn't going to have a good night because of the "strike zone" of Larry Poncino.  If Hill can't get low strikes, he can''t be successful.  And these were actual strikes not balls that could be called strikes.

The homeplate umpire can't have this much latitude in deciding what the strike zone is.
