So both games were losses today, but both were losses by one run.
Lets look at the Florida Game first:
John Maine showed he was human today going 5.2 innings and giving up 4 ER. However, that puts his Spring ERA at 3.07, showing that he is still having a very good spring
The question now is, can this good spring translate into a good season
Speed wise, well it was there. Milledge stole 2, Johnson and Hernandez each stole one
Thats how you win ball games
Milledge also had a pretty good day hitting wise, going 2-4, with a double and RBI. Back up catcher Castro also had an RBI
For the rest, check the box score.
Now for the Mets and Orioles, which was a 2-1 loss.
Hitting wise, besides Pedro Feliciano getting a hit, not much to report.
So by now you know that Park had a good day, but was moved to the bullpenn. Other notables were Billy Wagner who pitched a 1 hit inning. Schoweis who pitched 1 hit ball, Burgos who pitched a perfect inning, and Smith who had a 1 hit inning with 2 strikeouts
Smith is gonna be nasty this year, and I cant wait.
By the way, has anyone else noticed that Wright has 5 errors this spring…I dont think anything of it, but still, that seems a little over the top.
Out of curiosity, I wanted to see how our old friend Cliff Floyd is doing this Spring. So far, in 22 AB, he is hitting .318 with a homer and 5 RBI's
Pretty good cliff, pretty good
