Lala called out on a close play. It’s being reviewed, but he’s probably fractionally out.
You are correct. We often relied on soft lefties to get through the regular season, then when things got real, we could never hang with the teams that had legitimate pitching.Brutal loss. Might be time to take a look at Arteaga. Idk how anyone else feels, but for me pitching is what kept the CWS teams of this decade from being more competitive in Omaha.
And yes I understand we didn’t hit out there either, but at some point your pitching has to win you games when your offense can’t
Is it?Gates literally just walked four straight dudes with two outs. Unbelievable.
Did you even watch that inning? Gates got two quick outs and then all of a sudden couldn't come close to the strike zone. It was bizarreIs it?
Is it really unbelievable?
We've been mediocre for the past 4 seasons. Not sure why anyone would be surprised at the team's play (or lack thereof), especially someone like you who has a good knowledge of baseball.
He pulls off of everything,the only curveball he's going to be hit is a hanger up over the middle of the plate. Anything down and/or away he can't get to.Can't understand why Toral doesn't pick up the spin on the curveball. He has a quick bat. There's no reason to be so far out in front of the pitch. He's only going to get curveballs all season until he proves he can hit off speed pitches.
He did show a willingness to hit the ball the other way in Pitt game 3 where hit a double to the left center field gap. I was very encouraged. I just wish he'd take that approach 100% of the time because he's quick enough to reach the inside pitches.He pulls off of everything,the only curveball he's going to be hit is a hanger up over the middle of the plate.
