Ouch! and the 2 we caught were damn close to being safe. Gotta do a better job tonight.
Monty doesn't have a good move to first and also is a little slow to the plate . Plus , he throws a lot of off-speed pitches . It all adds up to make it hard to throw out runners when he pitches . I think Grayson was pressing a little , feeling like he had to throw everything 110 mph to have a chance . As it turned out , more accurate throws might have nailed one or two more . Wynkoop has a good move to first , so we'll see how it goes tonight .
