Julio Teheran is schooling folks down at the school yard.
Julio turned in yet another dominant performance last night, going 7 2/3 innings giving up 5 hits, no walks, no runs, and 3 strikeouts. I didn’t like the hook he got in the 8th inning being at only 91 pitches, but when wins are scarce, you have to get the win. Interestingly, we brought in Arodys Vizcaino for yet another 4-out save, but we’ve been hesitant to at other points. Vizcaino did give up a no-doubter to Jung Ho Kang, but he did his job.
We continue to pound out hits like we’re a respectable baseball club (10 tonight), but the runs are still scarce. We’re starting to leave the yard more often, as Tyler Flowers launched one into the centerfield seats. Flowers had 3 hits, and Ender Inciarte is coming on strong, as he had another 2-hit night. Gordon Beckham, who is quietly becoming a very helpful addition to our team, had a pinch-hit, run-scoring double in the 9th.
Man, it’s nice to win one.
