Bit of a bummer of a debut for Brad Lincoln last night. Gave up 5 runs in six innings of work, but according to ESPN was victimized by some poor Pirates defense which would have prevented some of the damage. Still, he did throw 56 of his 81 pitches for strikes. Do you guys think he's worth giving another start or two?
Lincoln gave up five runs in six innings on Wednesday, but was let down by some questionable defense.
An Adam Dunn dinger was a no-doubter, but the Pirates were unable to make any of three defensive plays in the bottom of the fourth that could've prevented three runs. Lincoln, who showed his athleticism with two hits and an RBI, threw 56 of 81 pitches for strikes in his six frames. His next start will come on Tuesday at home against the White Sox.
