While our hero continues his march back to the AL batting title (currently hitting .317, trailing Dustin Pedroia and his .321 avg), we check in with a fallen hero – Da Train himself, Dontrelle Willis.
Dontrelle has had a rocky road to recovery in the past few months since The Cleveland Incident, but Da Train has found his way back into the loving arms of Toledo. In fact, he picked up a win last Friday night down the road from me a bit in Richmond.
The final line:
6 IP 8 H 2 ER 2BB 5K
So, not bad, really. Still too many hits in just 6 innings (a WHIP of 1.67 is a bit much, no?) but the 5K and only 2BB is a reason for minor celebration.
And after the last two weeks, minor celebrations are about all we’ve got left…
