Re: Ryan Wagner
Wagner's outing might not have been quite as bad as the line looks. The first hitter he faced bunted his very first pitch for a base hit. Then he gave up a double to a .340 hitter. From there, it went sac fly, putout, K.
Then he was yanked after giving up a leadoff single. Mike Venafro came in and let the runner on first score, so he was charged with the second run.
I'm not trying to be a Wagner apologist, but before this game he'd made some tentative steps towards improvement, cutting his ERA from the 8 range down to the low sixes.
