Casey Janssen will be making his third career start tomorrow. Janssen will be making his second home…
Third Time IS The Charm for Janssen
Janssen mentioned after his first win how friends and family were watching him pitch again the Angels. Although he rooted for the Angels growing up, Janssen had no problem beating them.
"I'm rooting for the Jays now," said the right-hander. "It was special for me to share this game with my friends and family back home."
The lone hit that Janssen allowed was a single to Chone Figgins in the sixth inning. The 24-year-old issued a walk while striking out three batters.
Janssen said the first thing he was going to do was call his parents back home.
"It is an exciting moment for me right now."
Janssen was successful with precise location and movement on his fastball and cutter. The cutter is an important pitch for Janssen who needs it to fool hitters thinking a fastball is coming. Janssen , who was not able to finish batters off in his second start of the season after getting ahead in the count, was more effective in that aspect of the game Sunday as he threw pitches with late movement that ended up out of the strike zone once.
The 24-year-old is now 1-2 with a 3.63 ERA in 17.1 innings, having allowed 12 hits.
