It’s like the first time you go to eat at a new restaurant, and have a bad experience. So it was with Tsuyoshi Wada’s first time against fellow big league hitters.
Wada has labored through the first two here at Ed Smith Stadium against the Twins. An eighteen pitch, one run first, was followed by a 30 pitch 3 run top of the second.
Yet, aside from poor control, perhaps the result of some opening “night” jitters in a day game, the Twins have not exactly belted their way to this 4-0 lead they currently have over the O’s.
Wada has walked two batters, made an errant throw on a first inning check-swing tapper to the mound and fallen prey to bad luck a bunt single that blooped over the head of 1B Chris Davis.
Wada is on the mound for the third inning.
