Barry Zito really did not have a good day. His control was off and he hung a few curveballs. Barry gave up 4 earned runs through 4 innings on 5 hits (infield single, single, 2 doubles and a HR) and 2 walks. Zito's 2nd run didn't have to happen, with 1 out in the 2nd inning a flyball was hit to Jason Ellison in RF. Ellison positioned himself properly and threw a perfect 1 hop throw to home. Bengie Molina was unable to handle the waist high throw and a runner scored on the SAC fly.
I was shocked, when after he had throw 59 pitches through 3 innings, Zito came out for the 4th. He then pitched the entire 4th inning and ended up throwing 78 pitches on the day. I would think that was WAY too many for this early in Spring Training. Bochy took Ortiz out at the end of the 3rd after 32 pitches yesterday.....then today, he leaves Zito in after 59. I really don't understand it.
