Well, you knew this would happen sooner or later.
Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched four innings against the Baltimore Orioles today at Ft. Myers and Baltimore won, 5-3. Dice-K got hit hard for the first time, giving up two home runs and four runs total on six hits. He also struck out three and walked none. He also threw a way a potential inning-ending DP that led to a run.
Not a stellar performance by the $103 Million Dollar Man.
No biggie. As long as he didn't get hurt, everything's OK. He should be making his next start Friday against the Dodgers in Vero Beach.
