Nice the Mets 1st base runner is a walk by Kershaw by the relief pitcher in his 1st MLB at bat. :*)

According to the twitters he took a line drive off the leg near the knee.

Yeah came back and hit him hard. He was limping.

Looks like Cingrani's had one little hiccup and has otherwise been dealing. Anyone watching care to confirm/deny? I'm a huge fan of 0 BB so far.


He's throwing a lot of fastballs and keeping it in and around the strikezone. Cubs just can't hit it. The one pitch to Ransom was left out over the plate, but he's looked pretty good otherwise.

I hope not, cause I'd really like Cingrani to get off the hook here.

What a line put up by cingrani tonite: 7IP, 2 ER, 5 hits, 0 BB, 9 K. Me Likey! :-)
But Cincy scoring some runs now to get a win is the icing I'm looking for.

Can't see Kershaw lasting too much longer after he tossed 39 pitches that inning. %-6

Ellis gets Kershaw back to even with HR #100. ;-D

Starting:

PHI: Hamels (0-2, 6.46 ERA) (all three leagues)
CIN: Cingrani (1-0, 1.80 ERA) (2 leagues)
total run support so far ...

1 *****ng run. one. uno. a solo shot by a 4th outfielder.

at least the Florida Marlins of Miami gave me three in the day game .... grrrrrr

Cingrani looked significantly better this start, albeit against the Cubs. He threw more significant off-speed pitches and I love the way he challenges with high fastballs. He was sitting around 90-91 all game and still touched 93 and 94 in the seventh. As I mentioned last start, he has excellent control, and further solidified that talent today. I still don't expect too much from him this year, but he could turn into a pretty solid starter in the years to come.
