Opening Day pitching prowess
I ran down some of the top pitching prospects who are on the hill tonight in Minor League games. Let’s check in on the big matchup of the day.
The Jeremy Hellickson-Chris Tillman matchup has gone about how you’d expect (check Gameday here). Tillman’s out of the game, having thrown 81 pitchers over four innings. He gave up two runs on five hits while striking out five and walking one. Hellickson’s been even better. In his four innings (and he’s still in the game), he’s thrown just 57 pitches, allowing one run on four hits, no walks and five K’s. Talk about efficient.
