I don’t care who we start, but I’d like it to be whoever can get us through the third inning scoreless, even if that’s all they pitch. Just need a good first 9 outs to give us a chance to put on the pressure. Maybe that’s Connor.
Doesn’t surprise me. He’s shown he is more than capable. Just need him to stay under control through 5 or 6 innings. Don’t give up walks or more than a couple of scattered hits. If we can keep them to < 3 runs through 6, we should be in pretty good shape.
Let’s just hope he can come out and throw strikes, keep the ball down and mix his pitches, he does that he’ll be fine. Hasn’t pitched in over a week I’m a little bit concerned he might be too strong. Hope he can give us about 7.
He has a pretty good slider and curveball but does not have command of either one of them on a consistent basis.He can ever learn to do that and mix them in a good bit that 95 plus fastball will become unhittable, hopefully we’ll see that tonight.
What would be a big help if we come out and get two or three runs in the first before they bat and he can just relax and concentrate on throwing strikes
Well anytime you let a team have to worry about only the fastball then that’s what they’re looking for and his fastball is straight anyway, he doesn’t get much movement, that’s what I’m afraid of in the first inning tonight he loves to start people off of the first pitch fastball,all four of their first hitters are very aggressive, they will be looking for that,I would love to see him start them off with a breaking ball for a strike and that would really give them something to think about, I’ll be shocked if he does it though because he’s loves that fastball
