…. About Schmidt, Part III

Jason Schmidt looked only about a million times better last night, striking out the side in the first inning, and he hit his fifth career home run as the Giants beat the Dodgers 5-3 to get back to where they started. At 22-22, they are alive, if not exactly well, but Schmidt’s return from the DL may be just the thing to give them a boost. Not only was he hitting 95 MPH consistently, he was spotting corners, doing just about everything he wanted until his one tough inning, his last. He struggled to control his changeup during that final frame, something he said afterward he knew would be trouble.

Watching, I got the feeling he was throwing seven straight changeups because he was trying to work something out, and it almost cost him.

After he was done, the entire bullpen combined to throw four more shutout innings, punctuated by a perfect two batter save for Mr. Walker, who looked quite excellent.
