It was another tough loss given away by middle relief. Pelfrey deserved the W, took the ND, and impressed me with his game.
BMF had sick seats behind home plate so I got an up close look at Pelf’s 6K’s but his best moment came when he kept it together mentally in the 4th.
It was 2 out bases empty before a double and walk prompted a visit to the Mound. Moments after Warthen left Pelfrey dropped the ball balking runners to 2nd and 3rd.
It was a classic moment where he’d get pissed at himself, stomp around, tongue licking in the wind and give up a big hit. But not this time. Pelfrey kept it together and got Domonic Brown to ground to short.
That’s a great sign for the future. As soon an Pelfrey harnesses the mental aspect - LOOK OUT!
Hey man, at this point I’ll take the game within the game victories even if we lose on the scoreboard.
