Rick Porcello’s Debut
credit Roger DeWitt
The Tigers first round draft pick from a year ago made his debut of sorts today. Rick Porcello pitched 2 perfect innings, the first of which came while the Blue Jays regulars were in the game. Here’s how his day went:
- David Eckstein grounds out, pitcher Rick Porcello to first baseman Jeff Larish.
- Alex Rios grounds out, shortstop Mike Hollimon to first baseman Jeff Larish.
- Vernon Wells pops out to first baseman Jeff Larish
- Frank Thomas strikes out swinging.
- Russ Adams grounds out, second baseman Scott Sizemore to first baseman Jeff Larish.
- Matt Watson grounds out, third baseman Ramon Santiago to first baseman Jeff Larish.
Six batters faced and no balls leaving the infield. Plus getting The Big Hurt swinging and I think the outing can only be viewed as a positive.
