Nick Green With Walk Off Single

For those who missed it, Nick Green hit a walk off, 2-RBI single to win the game. Coming in with a .068 batting average, I knew he was due for a hit. He's at least a .118 hitter in my book.

Wang had an interesting outing giving up 6 hits and 2 walks with 4 earned runs, but he struck out 7 in the process. I was finally able to see Scott Patterson pitch today. He came in to finish up the 5th, and then pitched the 6th. He has a really odd delivery, kind of like a right handed Okajima. Patterson is the type of pitcher who gets outs, even though they look very hittable. He throws a 90-91 mph fastball with a large looping mid-70's curve. With that kind of stuff, you'd expect him to not be very good, but he's yet to allow an earned run this spring. He came in the 5th inning with one out, and a runner on first. It took him about 3 pitches to get a double play. Then he came in the 6th where it took 2 pitches to record 2 outs, and then had the third batter strike out looking on an 0-2 curveball. I was kind of surprised.

Shelley Duncan hit a homerun today, continuing his dominant spring performance, while Jason Lane and Morgan Ensberg both went 0-4. Giambi did what he does best getting a hit and 2 walks in three at bats. A-Rod continued being A-Rod, and the Cano & Cabrera Express stole a couple bases. When asked about the stolen bases Rays manager Joe Maddon deemed the acts "Borderline criminal." Go figure.

The true star of the game is Greedy Seizemore.

BTW, let's pray CMW won't use up his annual quota for strikeouts in spring training.
