LumberKing Avoid Sweep Take Gm 3 Over Hot Rods 6-3

April 29, 2016

"He was having trouble with the command of his fastball," BG manager Reinaldo Ruiz said. "He couldn't locate his fastball. A couple he couldn't get the call from the umpire, but that's part of the game. If you don't locate your No. 1 pitch, you are going to get in trouble and he paid the price. "At the end of the day, this is about development. He made too many pitches in that inning and we are trying to save his arm."
