the bottom line about the strike zone today was it was consistently large. That is all most major league hitters will say that they ask for in an ump;consistency. Everyone knew by the end of the 3rd inning how it was and Lohse just took advantage of it.
Why should he be throwing a pitch over the outer half when he can still get the call 3 inches outside? You can not hold it against. He pitched exceptionally well TODAY and I hope he can keep it up.
Also Dunn might have been able to adjust...
