  • Coaching visit to mound.
  • 4.Robinson Cano lines into double play, pitcher Matt Moore to first baseman Carlos Pena. Alex Rodriguez out at 1st.
Two walks in a row and one out. Cano hits into a 1-1-3 DP on the first pitch. This is a wasted inning with two on for free and could have been the difference in the 1 run game even with the E-3(his first of the year BTW).
A homerun with someone on first would have made the same difference. Or 3 more walks. How you score doesn't matter, it's that you score.

Cano smoked that ball btw. Can't say that was bad hitting, no matter the result.
