After watching the first game, I said to myself that we wouldn't be making the silly errors I saw this afternoon. Silly me. Keagan boots the first chance.

If this game continues as it has, do we have enough pitchers to go thru the L's bracket?

Kumar got two strikes on almost everyone. He did not finish them off though.

Granted, Keegan made an error and Vaz could have caught that second double.

But 36 pitches and three runs is the worst possible start. Only one run was earned.

Here is the deal. They are well scouted. They are laying off the slider and sitting on the fastball. It looks like they have seen something on his release or arm motion and that is killing him. Nearly 40 pitches in the first inning. Not good.

Carter Young doesn't need to hit 2nd. He only hits about .225 since his injury.

Young strikes out way too much for a #2 hitter.

This ump is pretty sharp through two innings. He's getting the close ones right - and telling them where they are.

Low strikes are in play - but consistent.

Big time lost opportunity there. Leave them at 2nd and 3rd.
