Couple of very hard hit balls by Rom & Bowden and a couple of walks, but Birds unable to dent the plate. 0-0 after 1

Another 2 Ks (backward) for Doty and a solid play by Kavanagh at 2B and the Birds are on to the bottom of the 2d still 0-0.

Ziegler gets the 1st hit of the game, but is stranded at 1B. JC P sitting 81-83 velo with decent location. 0-0 after 2.

2 Ks again for Doty. He's sitting 82-84 velo with a sharp curveball. Top of the order for the Birds coming up.

Birds go down in order with a K and a couple of fly balls. We're through 3 and no score.

Birds now have runners on 1B and 2B with 1 out.

Doty, sac bunt by Rom, walk to Finfrock.
