Game Seven Recap
Instead of watching the M’s-Rangers game, I drove over to Greensboro to catch Zach Wheeler’s pro debut for the Augusta GreenJackets, with Baseball America’s Conor Glassey and Ben Badler. I wasn’t all that sad to miss an Ian Snell start in Texas.
Wheeler, though, didn’t want me to get off that easy. So, he channeled his inner Snell, and ended up recording just one out. He walked three and threw nearly 40 pitches, most of them nowhere close to the strike zone, before departing. I may not have watched the M’s get trounced by Texas, but I had a similar experience.
Lousy road trip #1 is in the books. Let’s hope Safeco is a little more friendly this week.
