steve: kevin jepsen comes into the game. he has had a decent year. 1-1, e.r.a. 4.25. out for the 24th time. last year the e.r.a. was over 7.50. he has a big fastball. this year he is using it. he did pitch an inning last night. one walk, one strikeout in the eighth inning in relief of greinke. ken: so he has concluded his warm up tosses. gordon beckham, who is 1-1 generals jepsen is due up.
he is 1-3 tonight but had a home run taken away from him on a sterling catch but none other than who? mike trout. that fastball at 97 up high. as steve mentioned, he is using that fastball. a couple of years ago the only thing he threw against us was slider slider slider. that is out of play. if you missed that catch coming back in the second inning by trout --
steve: lance baird apparently saw something reflecting in the stands. he talked to the umpire about it. now it is remedied. ken: here is the 1-1 pitch. that one at 96. de aza on deck. youk, who is 2-3 with two home runs tonight, he is in the hole. that is what it could have been right there. breaking ball arcs two-hopper down to callaspo.
here is de aza. he has never faced jepsen. steve: matt thornton loosening up in the bullpen. that is how it played out last night. let's see if we can end it here without going to extras. last night matt came on for an inning in relief of jesse crain and was the beneficiary of the rios two-run homer to win it. ken: he of the rubber arm, matt thornton. pretty good pitch. outside. and the count is 1-0. gap out there in right center. de aza is 2-4 with two runs scored.
wells over toward the line in left. huge, huge gap out there in right center. and because of wells there is a nice gap in left center. once again the pay-off pitch. ouch. de aza fouling pitches off his visor the last few days. this is the 10th pitch in this sequence. he caught a face full of knee from izturis earlier. alejandro and youkilis both will absolutely grind it out with you.
steve: a look at both managers, one in the infancy stages of what should be a great year, and the other already established as one of the best in the business, mike scioscia. ken: and that is popped up. out number two. so here is youk, who is 2-3. here is what he did in the seventh with de aza aboard. steve: latroy hawkins came in to protect a two-run lead, and after two hitters, it
four. here comes adam and he is due. he is 0-3 tonight with a walk and he has faced jepsen one time and he is 1-1. the outfield extremely deep and no double set. he takes ball one. if it is over trumbo's head, it's out of here. if it is over wells' head it is out of here. not so sure about trout the way he can jump.
