Gary Lance on Tim Stuaffer's performance

Portland, OR-- Portland Beavers pitching coach Gary Lance has worked with Tim Stauffer in each of the last three years and has seen the good and the bad along the way. Saturday was an example of the near perfection.

Lance is a lot of things - he likes to keep things simple, he is a purist, and he likes to see pitchers throw the changeup.

On Saturday, two of those three traits held true and he talked about each in relation to Tim Stauffer 's outing. The right-hander was perfect through six before issuing a walk and then two hits with two outs in the frame, sandwiched around an error. Still, it was his best performance of the year and Lance was extremely pleased with what he saw.

Lance discusses all of that and more when we caught up with him after the game:
