Nice outing by Noland: No runs on 2 hits, in 4 innings of work.
Tough inning and 2/3 for Tole: 6 runs on 7 hits.
Even tougher first inning of work for Cacciatori: 2 runs on 2 BB and 2 HBP. Yikes. Fortunately, he got help from the CF that inning.
At every level of play, you must be able to throw strikes. At this level, you must throw strikes AND get hitters out. The 2022 lineup has the potential to be better than 2018 (which I think was slightly better than 2021)…… so, how good can the 2022 pitching staff be?
If the pitching can collectively be close to the level of production of 2013 staff (Stanek, Astin, Fant, Beeks, Suggs), then the Hogs will finally win it all.
