    9/28 O's @ Red Sox

    Very late ( top 9) but I thought Rich Hill deserved a game thread on a night when he , again, delivered a very credible 6 innings of shutout ball, including 9 Ks out of 18 outs. Sox in line for a 2 game win streak as the ever reliable Matt Barnes tries to close out the O's.

    As O'Brien and Eck mentioned last night, Barnes may become totally dysfunctional when the 14/20 second pitch clock is activated next year . Barnes does not need default "balls" called on him, he does just fine on his own.

    It was a treat to see Verdugo finally get a Red Sox Pesky Pole HR just snaking over the short wall down the RF line.

    Barnes closes it out with a 19 pitch, one hit, one walk, one Bush visit, DP featuring 9th, finishing with a K . Less than efficient, but effective in earning the save, and win for Hill

    Casas now has his OPS at .813, despite being below the Mendoza line (.190.)

    Looks like he's winning the 2023 1B job.

    Hes also impressed defensively.
    Hill pitched a great game. Amazing what he has done at 40+ years of age.

    Not bad for $5M, either.

    Bloom did much better on his pitching choices:

    2020: Perez & too many scrubs to list

    2021: Perez & Richards/ Sawamura & Andriese (Whitlock)

    2022: Wacha & Hill/ Diekman & Strahm (Schreiber)
