But I will take two great starts, followed up by a not so good one. Get it going again next time Zach!

What a lousy way for him to spend his birthday. He just didn't have it today.

His next start will say a lot about his character and whether or not this season will be a stepping stone for him. Let's hope he puts this last outing behind him, we really need he and Snell to have good years.

12 hits in 6 innings looks like the old Duke.

Maybe 119 pitches last outing had something to do with it.

Not being able to spot his fastball was his downfall.

This one struck me as one of those "almost" games.

I watched the 1st, and to start out, it wasn't much differant than his last outing when Tejada led off with a shot double. The differance in the first was that against Houston, the next batters hit the ball at someone who made the play, and Duke was able to settle down.

I saw Duke do this to start the game. However, AnLaRoche did not help by letting an emminatly playable groundball roll under his glove for a "double", and the next batters mangeed to flare balls into nowhere land, even as Duke broke their bats.

Its a momentum thing, at this point Duke starts trying too much and does not settle down into a groove like he did against Houston.
