Roy is "gutsy" - as if you didn't know

Roy got the win vs. the Netherlands last night, who were starting to look like the 75-76 Reds. It was a "gutsy" performance, as if there are other words to describe SP1.

So the final line last night: 4IP, 5H, 0ER. Faced 17 batters, got 12 out - 4 groundouts, 3 flyouts, 5 strikeouts. 70 pitches, 49 for strikes.

It's also worth noting his fastball touched 93 in the first inning and in the 2nd he threw a 67 mph curve with a 17" break (according to MLB Gameday). Nasty.
