Way to work that pitch count and give your starter time to settle his nerves.  :roll:

Our offense didn’t give him much time on the bench. Let’s see what happens…

That's on Call and Ruiz, BTW. Garcia did his part.

Dumb question: we say outer edge and inner edge of the strikezone in relation to the hitter. How do we describe the sides of the zone in relation to the pitcher?

They sure have a lot of room to stretch out.

OK, does it seem that Irvin prefers glove-side to both right-handed and left-handed hitters? It seems like a lot of his pitches, including the ones to strike out Hosmer, go there.

Those 1st and 3rd no out GIDPs made Jim Rice a hall of famer.

Effectively wild?  The curve is nice.

62 pitches through 4.  Not a bad pitch count.

57 now for Stroman. Matching up fairly closely.
