    Ramirez gets a groundout and strikeout to begin the second but then walks an awful hitter and serves up a two run homer. 5-3. Two out walks to crappy hitters are killer. This is going to be a slugfest.

    HR to a LH Norris Hopper.

    Why nibble with 2 outs to a hacker before that?

    Jeff Keppinger gives up another single. That should have been the third out.

    EdE makes it 6-3 with his 24th homerun.

    One of the better swings from Edwin this year. Line drive crushed to CF.

    10 groundouts, 1 flyout for Ramirez. 74 pitches through 5.

    He is using 2 pitches and 2 pitches only. Fastball-changeup.

    Yep. It's been a decent start so far but I think Ramirez's future is in the bullpen where he can run it up there at 94/95 and use that changeup. I think he could be a very good middle reliever with that two pitch combo.

    Phillips caught stealing. Running into more outs.

    I didn't get to see most of the game, can anyone give me a report about how Ramirez has pitched so far?

    He's looked pretty good. His fastball is around 90-92 and his changeup is very good. He allowed a lead off homerun to Winn after getting squeezed on the previous pitch. In the second inning he retired the first two hitters easily but then walked Burriss and allowed a homerun to Velez. Since then he's been very impressive. I believe he's retired eight straight now.

    6 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 10 GO/4 FO, 80 pitches.

    Bruce leads off the bottom of the 6th with a line drive single to LF.
