Ziegler gave up a run but from the box score it looks like they let Figgins round the bases (fielder's indifference and I assume no throw to the plate), still he gave up 2 hits and was one swing away from a BS after starting with a 3 run lead. Ziegler did K the last 2 outs though. Anyone see both pitch and can comment?
Edit: Also, Casilla had 1 BB in 2IP and threw 26 pitchers with only 14 for strikes. Was he wild or was he just missing the plate by design?
I didn't get to it in time to see Casilla, but Ziegler did absolutely nothing to worry his owners. He gave the solid single up to Figgins,who they left alone and stole uncontested, not sure if was interference. But then (in Anaheim) Ziegler had to get through a gauntlet of Kendrick, Abreu, Vlad, Hunter with only the single to Abreu. It looked like Abreu did a great job of hitting to get the bat on the ball and hitting it on the ground between ss and 3b. But then he locked in and K'd studs Guerrero and Hunter. Pretty interesting delievery Ziegler has, Vlad especially looked quite fooled.
