Another day, another L - that's how we do. This time, though at least we had a lead, but lost it in the 8th inning, and lost to the Braves 3-2.
A couple of positives: Jose Capellan threw 4.2 scoreless and gave up four hits. That runs his ER-less streak to 9.2 innings this spring. JJO says SP5 is now between Russ Ortiz and Jose Capellan.
After today, here's how the stats stand:
Ortiz: 0-1, 11.1IP, 13H, 7ER, 7BB, 10K, 5.56 ERA, 1.77 WHIP, .432 SLGA, .396 OBA
Capellan: 0-0, 9.2IP, 7H, 0ER, 0BB, 7K, 0.00 ERA, 0.72 WHIP, .235 SLGA, .229 OBA
Back to today's loss, Tejada and Erstad had two hits each while Santangelo and Capellan added one each.
In addition to Capellan's strong outing...
Paulino: 1IP, 1H
Graves: 1IP, 0H
Byrdak: 1IP, 4H, 3ER (and the L)
Wright: .1IP, 1H
