“I didn’t come out of the gate the way I need to,” mentioned Quantrill. “I wasn’t aggressive enough. I was pitching tenatively just around the zone. I was really impressed with what the hitters did after that first inning. That can take the wind out some guy’s sails.”
Quantrill held the Padres hitless and scoreless thru the following 5 innings. The issue was once the Guardians may just do little towards left-hander MacKenzie Gore, San Diego’s No. 1 select in 2017.
