TORONTO -- Casey Janssen was brilliant Sunday afternoon against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim…
Third Time Will be the Charm For Janssen
The second start for Janssen was different. It was not nerves that did the starter in, rather inexperience. Janssen didn't issue a walk in his second outing against the Orioles, but did give up five runs in six innings.
Janssen allowed three runs in the third inning, all of them coming with two outs, and the rally starting on a 1-2 count to Melvin Mora. The Orioles tacked on two more runs in the sixth inning, the big blast coming on a two-run homer by Jay Gibbons.
"He got ahead of Jay 2-0, and then Janssen let the count go 2-2, which favored the veteran batter."
"He is a very smart pitcher on the mound and knows how to pitch," the scout said of Janssen. "He threw nearly 70% of his pitches during his second start for strikes. He is getting over the nerves and now it is a matter of studying the hitters, and making quality pitches on the mound."
