Hyde said: “I didn’t think he really had his off-speed stuff early too. I thought he actually got a little better and got a little tired as he went on. Those first few innings took a lot out of him, a lot of foul balls, a lot of deep counts. But he kept pumping strikes. He’s got a lot of confidence in his fastball, flashed some pretty good slider and changeups at times, just wasn’t consistent with it and didn’t allow him to get some swings and misses or early contact to last longer. He was also on regular rest, too. Got a little tired there after the fifth but I was really impressed with how he competed tonight.”
