It is a bit misleading in runs given up though and stat line. He had two outs in the 5th when he got a third called strike but was a wild pitch(not sure how you get called third strike and wild pitch).  He then walked a guy and was pulled and the reliever gave up 3 run homer.  

Yeah, did anyone see this play? How do you have a wild pitch on a called strike?

I didn't see it but probably a swinging strike on a ball in the dirt that got by the catcher.  Hall throwing in the upper 90s the batter has to get the bat started early.

Well if the batter swung then it's not a called strike.  Unless it's just a mistake in the box score.

I've seen a wild pitch scored on an apparent cross-up that the catcher has no chance to catch because he's looking for a different pitch in a different spot (even though the scorer doesn't really know who crossed up whom). I can't recall ever seeing that when the pitch is in the strike zone, but I guess it could happen.

Where is the box score does it tell you whether it was a called strike or a swinging strike?

Only 58% of his pitches for strikes.

I don't know how accurate Gameday is at that level, but I was following in the first inning and Hall walked a guy on 3-2 and according to the displayed strike zone every single pitch - including all four called balls -- were in the strike zone. Either Gameday is off or the Umpire had a strike zone the size of a deck of cards.

Thanks.    A called strike wild pitch with Hudgins catching.  Wish I could see that one.

Without seeing it, I’d bet that the description as a called strike is erroneous.

FG Longenhagen + Goldstein on their update bumped him to FV 55 same as Rodriguez and pegged him #32 MLB-wide, I believe the highest I've seen for him.    Their couple phrases used the Hader comp, should he not harness the repertoire to SP.

Other side of coin - they keep Rodriguez FV 55 and #28 MLB-wide, shy of Baseball America's exuberant take.

Gunnar entered 50 FV range as #88 overall.

All of those raw ranks a little deflated as Longenhagen on intro simply said he hasn't scrubbed list for recent graduates.

Hall is going to miss a few weeks.  Had an MRI and no structural damage but he has some inflammation.

Not trying to be annoying, but I’ll just note that Elias said “several weeks” before he is able to start throwing again, which to me is different than missing a few weeks. Full quote from the MASN article below:

““There was some tendinitis, some inflammation, so we’ll pull him out of the rotation, let him rest for a couple of weeks and in several weeks start to build him back up and return to the Bowie rotation here in good time,” Elias said.”

I know this is one of these situations where we’ll all hold our collective breath, and not trying to be overly pessimistic. Just want to manage expectations a bit that I’m kind of feeling like it’ll be measured in months (as in 1-2), not weeks, before we’re seeing Hall pitch in Bowie again. That’s the implication I’m getting from Elias. Obviously all good if so, just need to rest the kid up and hopefully get him back to 100%.

So much for the discussion of whether he should be in AAA.    With Smith’s promotion and Hall’s injury, Bowie’s rotation suddenly seems a lot weaker.   Of course, they did win a 1-0 shutout yesterday behind Ofelky Peralta and others.   

Hopefully this is just a bump in the road for Hall.

    • Oh, I don’t agree with it, but after years of having arguments about “sunk costs” I’m left without any other impression.  In my mind, including Davis when the team was horrible, and now Severino or Franco, these guys are taking the roster spot of someone more deserving. Not always, but there’s a pretty good case for someone to take any of those spots.
    • Per MLB rules online, the ball is live if it is “unintentional interference.”
    • He was emptying the tank there.   The first inning or two, he was slower.   The first touch of 94-95 I noticed wasn't until a few innings along, on a 2 out 2 strike pitch.   But he really seemed to pick up steam in the middle. Hartford seemed kind of terrible, but at least he held serve, if not a little more.   On the Either/Or, I'd easily pick Rodriguez still.
    • It was Roth followed by Roth tonight in Delmarva.   I don’t recall that happening before with them.  
    • For the second time in a couple of weeks, an Orioles ball boy touched a fair ball that bounced in his direction tonight and the ball was ruled dead when he touched it. Unlike the other incident, this ball literally came right at the ball boy’s chair. He barely had to move his glove to a spot maybe 18 inches under his lap.  He was mightily embarrassed when he realized his mistake.   The other incident was more egregious, though neither was good and the the ball boy/girl supervisor really needs to call a meeting and let all these kids know it’s an unacceptable mistake.  (I saw another ball boy/girl do this in a recent O’s road game, I believe). That said, here’s my question.  Assume the kid jumps from his chair and the ball either rattles around under the chair or ricochets off one of the legs and back out.   In either instance, Is that a live ball? I think the kid is supposed to try to move the chair to avoid those scenarios, but I’m still curious what the ruling would  be.   By the way, a few innings later the same ball boy did a nice job of snagging a foul ball that had bounced off the side wall and was about to go into the field of play.   The fans sitting over there cheered him, something I doubt they would have done normally but they did it to, quite literally, “cheer him up” after his prior mistake.  Classy move.  
    • I don’t mind it much when the TV guys do it, since you can see the action.  It bothers me more on radio, where you’re dependent on the announcers to know what’s going on.   A skilled announcer can do an interview between the action but describe the game decently at the same time, and minimize the spillover.
