One thought on “Down On The Farm

  1. I read the AAA game story here.

    Volquez’s bb/k ratio was better in this outing (1bb & 5k) but he still had trouble at the start of the game.

    The first four Knights batters reached base against Bats starter Edinson Volquez, capped by Dayan Viciedo’s two run single that gave Charlotte a 3-0 lead.

    While he only had 1 walk, his wildness allowed 2 more runs to score in the 2nd inning:

    Volquez took the mound in the bottom of the inning…he allowed a double to Andrew Garcia and a walk to Alejandro De Aza with one out. After coaxing a ground out that advanced the runners to second and third, Volquez uncorked two wild pitches in one at-bat to score both runners and bring the Knights lead to 5-1.
