wow, Kuo hasnt given up 2 runs since who knows when. He was clocked at 97? He usually hits around 94 to 95. Was the good hot or has his velocity just increased? He might have been trying to overthrow it and so he was getting hit. BTY, Hu was 2-3 with a run today. Was he the closer today? I wonder if Torre(after Kuo gave up 2 today) will still test out Kuo at closer. I think he might make a good closer.
