Amazing play by Janish to start the inning. Ran a ball up the middle down in CF, did a 360, and fired to first.
Johnny struggling with his control tonight. Walks the 2nd guy on 4 pitches.
Ball 5. Nice slider in for strike one. Fastball inside. Fastball right by him for strike 2. Ball 3 just inside. Hanging slider banged into LF for a single.
Pitching coach to the mound.
Hit and run, fastball fouled back. Strike 1. Heater on the inside corner for strike 2. A little duck snort to Bruce, but Bruce throws the runner out at the plate. Gun.
2nd and 3rd two men out.
Slider fouled back strike 1. And he beans the pitcher.
Bases loaded 2 out.
Slider high ball 1. Line out to Bruce in RF.

Rob Neyer: "Any writer who says he'd be a better manager than the worst manager is either 1) lying (i.e. 'using poetic license') or 2) patently delusional. Which isn't to say managers don't do stupid things that you or I wouldn't."
van benschoten is pitching for the indians he was up with the pirates but really stunk it up. He is one of their pitching prospects who has not panned out and has had arm injuries.
back to back singles for cantu and hangian for the bats
