Also seemed to take some off to execute a 2-seamer that showed more sink and action overall. Threw a few curveballs, 1/7 slurve shape with depth, slows arm. Went five scoreless innings punching out six while allowing six hits and two walks. Went 1-for-3 at the plate scoring two runs and walking once.
