I was wondering more due to them pulling him after 3 with a lead and only 80 pitches than the runs.
as i mentioned earlier, i'm pretty sure it's due to the fact that it's the first game of the year and 80 pitches over 3 innings will wear down a pitchers arm a lot faster than 80 pitches over an extended period.
Agreed, and he clearly didn't have his best command today, so no reason for addition innings pitched if there aren't going to be quality.
