[Andy Sonnanstine] struck out a team-record seven batters in a row during one stretch in Tampa Bay’s 9-4 victory, adding singles in his first two professional at-bats to make himself the reluctant star of the game.
“He almost looks like younger version of El Duque,” [Marlins manager Fredi] Gonzalez told reporters. “He changes speeds, changes angles, throws strikes. He did a nice job.”

Maddon noted that Sonnanstine uses a full delivery that isn’t seen as much these days, helping him hide the ball from hitters a bit longer.

“He’s a pitcher,” said Maddon. “He studies his craft, he knows what he’s doing, and he’s constantly showing to a lot of young pitchers that you don’t have to be (radar) gun-favorable to pitch in the major leagues.”
He didn’t walk a batter and struck out 10, including that run of seven straight from the second inning through the fourth that broke the team mark of six Scott Kazmir had established April 8 at Tropicana Field.


Nice find Hort. That about sums it up.
