It's a pitchers' duel in St. Louis, with Cole Hamels and Jamie Garcia trading scoreless frames. If there's a difference between the two pitchers, though, it's with efficiency. Hamels, as Rob notes, is up to 56 pitches entering the fourth. Garcia is through four having thrown only 39 pitches, 31 of which have been strikes.
A lot has been made of Ryan Howard's platoon splits, and rightfully so. But it sure doesn't help his cause when the left-handed pitcher can do this with a sinker:
The #5 up there was the strikeout pitch -- it was a sinker at 90, thrown in a perfect spot, and Howard was caught looking. He didn't have a chance. Ted Williams wouldn't have had a chance. Ichiro would have hit it for a home run, but only if he were that type of hitter and felt like it.
