Tillman had a rough inning, but he looks like a solid pitcher from what I saw. Brian Matusz was very impressive as well.
Flowers looked alright if a bit stiff back there, but the error was something a lot of young catchers would have committed. Had he known who was running a bit better, he probably would have put it in his pocket. Otherwise, I didn't notice a whole lot wrong with Flowers defensively, not that he was tested all that much. Gillies has insane speed, and is one of the fastest players I have seen in a long, long time (he stole 3rd while Flowers was back there, right?).
