Jim Johnson has been pretty good this year with 14 saves and an ERA and WHIP under1. Today was not a good day. Trying to hold onto a one run lead. Johnson gave up a pair of singles before he was gifted double play ball and his hopes for pulling a save out went up. One single, later the game was tied. An HBP and another single later, the lead was gone. Details:
The tally: 4! singles, 1 HBP. 2 runs and 1 blown save. A lot of people think Jim Johnson has been pitching above his head. I won’t say but his year just got a little worse tonight.
