Seemed like Williams was testing the umpire's zone as much as he was going after the hitters in the top of the first.

I guess that makes up for some of Keibert's other baserunning blunders.

I was going to say that it's good our pitcher didn't immediately give back the runs, as has happened all too often, but I guess it just took him another inning. Still, at least it was only two runs and the lead remains.

Giving up hard contact. Getting openly frustrated with the ump. Yeah.

No reason for that, Jeimer. None. You can't steal 2nd with a runner standing there. Ugh.
