Worth a look ...
Former TCU pitcher Jake Arrieta began the season as the Opening Day starter for the Baltimore Orioles in what will likely be his third full Major League season.
Before Tuesday night, Arrieta was 2-2 with a 3.52 ERA for the AL East leading Orioles. After Tuesday night, he is 2-3 with a 4.23 ERA.
Arrieta told The Baltimore Sun, "It was the first time I've ever seen anything like that. Very special hitter."
He added: "He's the kind of guy who really likes to jump on the first pitch, and we know that as a staff. I think it was just [that] we did him a favor by throwing him too many hittable pitches. He didn't miss tonight. You got to tip your cap to him, but we got to do a better job -- me especially -- making better pitches early in the count to him."
