On Opening Day Will did something he’d never done before…he struck out four batters in one inning. Pretty rare. Going over the books from Saturday, I noticed that in the third inning of game two, Colin also struck out four batters.
He struck out the first batter, and had the second batter struck out, but the lousy first base umpire didn’t ring up strike three when the batter came close to checking his swing. That batter walked on a full count and later scored.
The third batter struck out but reached on the dropped third strike. Colin could’ve been out of the inning by striking out the side.
After a hit and a walk, Colin struck out the next two batters. So actually he struck out FIVE batters in one inning!
