The First Pitch Tuesday was not a nice day/night for most pitchers. Only Lance Lynn, Cliff Lee, Anibal Sanchez and rookie Nick Tepesch had games you should be impressed by. Lynn struck out 10 Cincinnati hitters in six one-run innings. It was a very impressive start. Lee came one out away from a compete game, but Charlie Manuel took him out in a five-run game for some reason. It was classic Lee: six strikeouts and no walks. Sanchez struck out eight in seven innings and had a 13.1 swinging strike rate (that’s really good). Tepesch, in his major league debut, pitched 7.1 strong innings, holding Tampa Bay to one run. Tepesch had a 9.6 swinging strike rate last night, which is right at league average on the year and can be seen as a positive for the rookie. His next scheduled start is Sunday in Seattle so he’d make for a good plug-n-play for you streamers. Rounding the Bases A pitchers’ bad day makes for a good day for hitters.
