Jake Odorizzi Talks About His Start Versus Indians

Rays Odorizzi Strikes Out 11 Indians In Five Innings

Jake Odorizzi was very impressive in mixing his pitches, especially a 68 mph curveball that kept the Tribe hitters off balance. He worked five scoreless innings striking out 11 while walking just two. He left the game with the Rays up 2-0 but the bullpen was unable to hold the Indians off the board in a Rays 6-3 loss.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
