Borchard 1/2 2 BB, .255

Is it just me, or is Borchard maybe, perhaps, hopefully, starting to figure out a few things?

This is very nice to see.

Notes on the Knights' game:
- Hernandez was Hernandez. He looked healthy, and baffled most hitters with junk and a few, well-located fastballs.
- Marte was dominant in his 1st inning of work but tired in the 2nd, and left the bases loaded. Velocity looked/sounded fine, but I didn't see any gun readings. The only hard-hit ball was a liner by Kearns, who isn't really a minor-leaguer anyway. Ozzie probably shouldn't pitch him for more than 1 inning in the near future.
- McCarthy was better than the numbers show. He didn't get rocked (3 baserunners in 2.1 IP is not too shabby) and was squeezed on a lot of 2-strike calls where he threw his curve or fastball at the knees but the batter was too fooled to swing. One error was a slightly off-line pickoff throw that Gload couldn't quite dig out. The 2nd wasn't really an error at all, IMHO. He tried to snag a hot shot up the middle, but it glanced off of his glove and died short of the SS for what usually is ruled an IF hit. If he missed it completely, the ball certainly would have gotten through the IF. Both ER came on what was barely a HR. It just cleared Borchard's glove and the padding on the RF wall and went under the fence that sits atop the wall through a narrow gap . . . a great example of the "game of inches" maxim.
- All-around good game by Borchard. Nobody tried to run on him, even the faster players. If only he could consistently hit for AVE . . . .
- Nice all-around game for Anderson, as well. He covers lots of ground with ease and came in to make a particularly rangy play on a ball that looked like a sure hit. His single was hit on the screws, and another ball was creamed just foul down the LF line.
