    Lewis has some good velocity, but command isn’t great

  • David W. Cash

    He’s throwing in the upper 80s, which is good. He only threw in the low 80′s last year in the minors. He does manage to get one strike out by using his fastball combo change up.

  • David W. Cash

    Lewis has been behind in the count for each batter so far.

  • David W. Cash

    Lewis finally able to get ahead in the account against Jeff. Also, just used his curveball. But Jeff Francoeur gets the ball to for an RBI. Indians lead 1-0

  • Nolan Writin’

    Lewis doesn’t make it out of the inning. He pitched 32 pitches/15 for strikes and allowed 2 runs. On the positive side, he was able to get his velocity up to 89 MPH. Needs to work on command and mixing it up with his curve and change up.

  • Nolan Writin’

    Indians 2-0
