Two young pitchers — Justin Masterson and Colby Lewis — gave fans a good show on Wednesday.
Lewis tied his career high by striking out 10 in just 5.1 innings. He allowed three hits, two earned runs and alked four.
Masterson K’d nine in six innings, allowed two earned runs, nine hits and walked none. Masterson and Lewis have respective 2.45 and 2.19 ERAs.
It’ll be fun to watch these two develop.
It was tough to sort through this crowd and narrow it down to 10, but it is done. Here are the other nine:
Chase Utley — Went 2-for-4 with a pair of homers, scored three runs and drove in four. He barely missed a third homer, too.
Shane Victorino — Hey, hit Victorino hgher in the order and you get this: 4-for-5, 3 runs, a career-high five RBI and a homer.
BJ Upton — Only went 2-for-5, but jacked both hits out of the park. He scored two runs and drove in four.
Jonathan Sanchez — If the youngsters hadn’t dueled so well, Sanchez would have made the intro today. He struck out 11 in eight innings of shutout ball. He allowed three hits.
David Price — Second stellar outing in a row. He struck out seven in seven innings, allowing four hits and one earned run. He walked two. His season ERA is 2.45.
Javier Vazquez — Allowed four earned runs in just 5.1 innings and saw his ERA go down. Hayoo!
Matt Kemp — Hit his third homer in four games, but that’s not all. He scored three times, drove in four runs and stole a base.
Tommy Hanson — Struck out seven — there could be a whole top ten of 7 K pitchers from Wednesday — and allowed one earned run in six innings.
Carlos Quentin — Had one of those categorical performances that can win your week for you, driving in six runs Wednesday. He also went 2-for-5 with a homer and scored twice.
