(June 2)

vs. Geoff Jenkins
0-0 93 fastball, just high
1-0 94 fastball, fouled back
1-1 83 change, low
2-1 84 change, swung on and missed
2-2 94 fastball up in zone, swung on and missed

vs. Lyle Overbay
0-0 85 change, in dirt
1-0 92 fastball, high strike
1-1 92 fastball, strike
1-2 93 fastball, inside corner, fouled away
1-2 84 change, in dirt
2-2 84 change, wild pitch in dirt, near Overbay's feet, Lee to third
3-2 84 change, swung on and missed

vs. Bill Hall
0-0 84 change, just low
1-0 84 change, swung on and missed
1-1 84 change, swung on and missed
1-2 93 fastball, comebacker, off Gagne's glove, easy 4-3 for Kent

18 pitches, 7 balls, 11 strikes

Gagne's fastball topped at 92 Thursday; he passed that five times tonight. At one point he threw six changeups in a row, getting strikes on three of them. The pitch that he allowed the double on had fire, and Lee did well to get a hit off of it.

Glad Houlton got his chance. Hope he gets another. He didn't seem to get fazed when he let the lead-off hitters get on. We could have used a little clutch hitting tonight, but maybe we've turned the corner.

After reading the MLB article Jon posted, I have to give Houlton bonus credit for keeping Erickson out of the game.

"I would say that at some point in time, Scott Erickson has to pitch tonight," Tracy said, citing Houlton's low pitch count (75-80) and the need "to have a bridge-builder to the back end of the bullpen."

Does Fox use the same radar gun as the stadium.

Friday night Weaver and Capuano were both in the high 80s and occasionally 90. Turnbow was 95 and 96.

That double was a pop fly. Repko was shading Lee the wrong way. And after watching the replays I concluded that Vinnie was wrong; Repko didn't dive for that ball, he stumbled and fell.
