Miami 6, Arizona 2
Brandon Pfaadt made his second big league start last night. For the second start in a row he was plagued by some hard hit balls. This time, Jorge Soler took him deep, twice. Soler’s two blasts accounted for five of the six runs surrendered by Pfaadt in his six innings of work. At the plate, Evan Longoria had a decent night, but the team as a whole had trouble getting hits when it mattered.

Except for those two mighty blasts, it wasn’t a terrible game. But, those two blasts happened, and boy did they happen.
Pfaadt Hit Early
Torey Lovullo says Brandon Pfaadt was becoming too reliant on his fastball. The in-game results would seem to agree.
