A's Walk Their Way to Victory at Fitch Park

Joseph Rodriguez walked with the bases loaded to force-in the winning run, as the Athletics took advantage of ten walks to edge the Cubs 7-6 in a Cactus League Extended Spring Training game played Friday afternoon on Field # 4 at the Lew Wolf Training Complex at Fitch Park in Mesa, AZ.   

The game was pre-planned as a five-inning contest, as both teams had only a limited number of pitchers available to cover the innings.  

Here is the abridged box score from the game (Cubs players only):  

CUBS LINEUP:
1. Bradlee Beesley, RF: 1-2 (2B, L-5, BB, 2 R) 
2. Angel Cepeda, 3B: 1-1 (L-8 SF, BB, 1B, R, 2 RBI, SB) 
3. Alfonsin Rosario, CF:  1-3 (E-5, K, 1B, RBI)
4. Yahil Melendez, 2B: 0-3 (6-4 FC, K, 3-1) 
5. Scott McKeon, SS: 0-2 (HBP, K, F-9) 
6. Albert Gutierrez, 1B: 1-3 (4-6 FC, K, 1B) 
7. Yidel Diaz, C: 0-2 (BB, 6-3, F-8, R) 
8. Geuri Lubo, LF: 1-3 (2B, P-5, 6-3, R, RBI)
9. Jairo Diaz, DH #1: 1-1 (BB, 1B, R) 
10. Miguel Pabon, DH #2: 0-0 (BB, L-8 SF, RBI)  

CUBS PITCHERS
1. Naz Mule: 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 1/2 GO/AO, 33 pitches (20 strikes) 
2. Fraiman Marte: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 5 R (5 ER), 5 BB, 1 K, 1 GIDP, 1/0 GO/AO, 38 pitches (15 strikes)
3. Mat Peters: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 2 R (2 ER), 5 BB, 1 K, 1 WP, 1/0 GO/AO, 41 pitches (15 strikes)

Hi Arizona Phil!

Exciting to see Naz Mule in box scores a few times. What's his stuff like now after the TJS?

RAISIN: In the game versus the A's at Fitch Park last Friday, Mule threw half FB and half SL (16/16), and one CH (which coincidentally was the only hard-hit ball off him -- a near HR line-drive double off the LF fence). FB was 91-94 and the SL (really more of a "slurve") was 80-82, and he got three swing & miss on each pitch (six swing & miss total out of his 20 strikes). So I think it is safe to say that right now, Mule is strictly a two-pitch pitcher (FB/SL), 

in 2016 hendricks threw 190 innings for 45 earned runs.

in the shortened 2020 season hendricks threw 81.1ip for 26 earned runs.

in 2024 hendricks has thrown 21ip for 28 earned runs.

    cubs get one!  infield popup and m.busch ends up on 2nd.  wind owes cubs fans...need to get that run in to make it more fair.

    cashed in!  tie game!

    assad get d.ross'd after 4.2ip...men on the corners...102 pitches thrown (104 his season and career high).

    cubs out here giving away chances at outs with the defense...not the first time this year...too many times this year.

    i understand 2 of the 3 miscues (so far in the 5th) were wind-aided, but still...damn...

    big OF shot on the bleachers and judging by what i'm seeing, about 75%+ of those baseball-bat "mugs" of beer seem to be sold to the bleacher fans.

    ryne sandberg posted his latest scans show no cancer.

    that's good.  that said, you gotta wait a few years to see where you're truly at with something like stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer.  if it didn't metastasize to his bones, he's already got an advantage with the latest news...that area of metastasis seems to be one of the worst signs of survival with this particular cancer.

    he will be monitored for the rest of his life until his age/health dictates it's no longer neccessary.

    good news for now.  hopefully he's one of the slightly better than 1/3rd that survive stage 4 prostate cancer after 5 years.  this news is a great start.

    Interesting pre-game news from Craig Counsell:

    • Professor moved to the bullpen, for now
    • Adbert seeking a second opinion on the forearm strain (sounds ominous)

    yeah, pitch framing is another defensive love interest I don't understand.  i mean, it's nice, but it's elevated importance is way overblown (imo) since the data points to a couple calls of a ball/strike a game that's influenced.

    STL's love affair with it involved getting contreras out of the C position for a while last year...which showed no improvement with his C replacements even keeping his bat in the lineup as a DH.  this year it cost STL his great bat for months, if not the whole season, because they moved him closer to the plate to help frame better.

    you know what's undervalued now for catcher?  stolen bases.  the pizza boxes on the field have people running.  both gunning down runners and being able to do so should be a bit more important.  contreras had a good 33% CS rate, but more importantly his arm and ability only had 9 attempts to steal on him in 20 games (6sb 3cs).  i would say this is much more important than gaming 2-ish ball/strike calls your way per game.

    Somewhat OT: I used to be staunchly against robo balls and strikes. I’m growing more and more in favor of it. When I pitched in high school I always tried to extend the outside corner but watching at mlb level, I’m just tired of watching crappy hitting catchers stay in the big leagues too long because they’re good pitch framers. The two Cubs catchers can’t hit, can’t throw, but they’re good pitch framers and the pitchers like them. We sadly are now stuck with DH in both leagues (a travesty), so since we’re going all in on offense, get these worthless bum catchers out of baseball.

    If umpires insist on calling balls and strikes, I think it’s insane some of these guys get to do that. They should have two sets of rotating umpires; base umpires and home plate umpires.

    Sorry for the Mark Prior tag. I'm posting from mobile and it's not letting me remove it. I feel haunted.
