It wasn't as bad as his line looks.
He gave up a two run shot to Eduardo Perez, so his stat line after 7 IP was 7 IP, 2 ER, 0 BB, 8 K, 1 HR. I think about 6 hits.
His pitch count was doing well, but he ran into trouble in the 8th. Eduardo Perez knocked a solo shot, then Flash wasn't able to strand RJ's 2 runners.
He was pounding the strike zone all night so it was going well.
