I think it’s official - Big Pelf is back to Big again.
It was rough sledding in the early season but Pelfrey has worked hard to get back to last year’s form.
Last night’s final line was 1R, 5H, 5K, 0BB in 9IP. My favorite stat is the ZERO walks. In fact Pelf hasn’t walked a batter in THREE GAMES!
The guy has just been pounding the strike zone and watching him close out the game was a testament to both his determination and Collin’s old skoolness as a skipper.
Pelf had 95 pitches after 7 so I thought he might not return for the 8th, but he did. That inning cost him 13 more pitches but Collins let him start the 9th.
Even after Turner booted what should’ve been the final out Collins let him stay in till the end which happened to come 1 pitch later.
