Marlins: RHP Trevor Richards (0-1, 8.64) did not complete five innings in either of his first two starts. "I hate losing. I was trying to do something simple to get the 'W'". The over has hit in four of those games, as opposed to four that've cashed the under.
Richards, 24, said he was more comfortable in his second start - he allowed three runs, six hits, with three walks and two strikeouts in four innings against Philadelphia - than in his debut, when he took a loss against Boston, giving up five runs and eight hits, with a walk and five strikeouts, in 4 1/3 innings. He failed to spend any time in the majors a year ago, instead turning in 475 plate appearances of.259/.325/.368 hitting at Triple-A with the Twins organization. We don't like to get hit, though. At the end, we were just saying, 'Here it is. And center fielder Starling Marte wasn't backing up the base, probably because he went over to right on the fly to cover in case Polanco missed it.
And he laid down a bunt on the first pitch.
"It's getting old", Ziegler said. "Here's the two-seamer. Come and hit it'". Pittsburgh improved to 10-4 to start the season. "He was committed", said Pirates manager Clint Hurdle, who was not tempted to pull Taillon at any point despite the fact that no Pittsburgh starter had lasted beyond six innings. The errant throw allowed two more runs to score. "I was feeling great and seeing the results". "It definitely wasn't my best stuff or best executed game".
