Trevor May brought more than just his equipment to Oakland for his major league debut today. He also brought a truckload of butterflies. By the time the smoke cleared, May had walked 7 and allowed 4 in 2 innings of forgettable work.
Everyone who reads my Red Wings posts, knows that the Wings pitching staff this year has had major issues with control. The walks have been a sorry reminder of how many games you can lose when you walk the ballpark
May's start tonite had everyone scambling for the record books to see who, if any, walked that many batters in his major league debut, in only 2 innings.
Well, it wasn't a very good night for his former team either...Wings got pasted and lost ground in a 14-5 thrashing. Alex Meyer didn't have it tonite either.
