Re: 8/20/2012 Reds at Phillies
2-2 after three.
Have to wonder the thought process there. Two outs, nobody on, Ryan Howard up. Can't quite understand why you give him a hittable pitch.
If you walk Howard, you have Mayberry up.
Not saying you intentionally walk him, but keep it off the plate.
I've seen it all year, pitchers seemingly afraid to walk guys and grooving pitches against obvious home run hitters when unnecessary.
