So Volquez is staked to a 3 run lead and decides that the strike zone is the enemy. 3 strikeouts, 3 runs, and 6 walks through 3 ip. Wonder if he'll finish 5 innings to qualify for the win at this pace. %-6

He's been so good with his walks so far this year, too. Would hate to see him fall back into that trap.

Not sure if the weather (between the wind and delay) are messing with him or he's just off today but man...that's like Sonny Gray's last outing but without the shutout result. :)
