Aaron Sanchez has the early start today, he survived the first inning this time with a walk and a single followed by a double play and the third out. 14 pitches, 7 strikes.
Gerry - Thursday, May 29 2014 @ 11:28 AM EDT (#287180) #
Through 3 innings Sanchez has 31 pitches, 21 strikes. after the first two hitters reached he has retired nine in a row.

Binghamton touched Sanchez for 3 runs, but the damage was almost all done with ground balls.  That is much better than when he can't find the plate. Buffalo right now has Goins, Diaz and Kawasaki (along with Kevin Nolan) in the middle infield.  It might be better if one of them was in New Hampshire to provide better defensive support for Sanchez (and Boyd).

Sanchez 52-25 after 4. Sanchez gave up three runs that inning. Two soft singles were followed by two doubles.

Sanchez 75-51. Nine hits, five runs. Could he be just throwing it down the middle today after his bad start last week?
Mike Green - Thursday, May 29 2014 @ 12:25 PM EDT (#287189) #
Sanchez had thrown 88 pitches after 6 innings.  They sent him out for the 7th.  Bravo.
Mike Green - Thursday, May 29 2014 @ 12:27 PM EDT (#287191) #
Alas, Sanchez walked the leadoff hitter and he is gone from the game.  This is a step forward though in terms of endurance/durability.  We will see how he is the next time out.
