Brian Wilson pitched a scoreless 6th. He gave up 2 singles and struck out 1. He really pitched well. One of the singles was a bunt, where Pedro Feliz was playing too deep and the second was a weakly hit seeing eye groundball that just made it in the hole between 3B and SS. The final out was a broken bat groundball to 2B. One of the best 2 hit innings you will ever see. Wilson threw 14 pitches......only THREE of them balls.

As a note, look how low to the ground Wilson is as he delivers the ball. His butt is actually lower than his left knee.

Gotta be happy with two good outings in a row for Wilson. He could be a big key to the season. Some, including me, have compared Matt Cain to Tom Seaver. Not THERE"S a Tom Seaver delivery from Wison right there! I remember seeing pictures of dirt on Tom Terrific's right knee in SI as a kid to show how he dragged it in the dirt when he delivered the ball.

i'm digging the beard. Gives him the rugged intimidating manliness that helps when your a closer.

Dr B,

You're absolutely right. That is DEFINITELY a Seaver delivery. It's great to see. I'm surprised we don't see more pitchers driving from that low position. I'm hoping it's working for Brian.

What I noticed even before reading the caption was how his right knee was virtually touching the mound. Wow.
