Sosa

My take is that the Rays are showcasing him today by giving him the start. McClung again pitches two scoreless innings in relief.  Its true his strikeout numbers are down, but I can't fault him with getting the outs and no runs given up. Is McClung the modern day Norm Charlton? A guy who pitched fore Lou in Cincy and in Seattle as both a starter and a reliever.

Speaking of Ks, Z Rays mentions that "A hitter has to strike out almost 34 times to cost his team a single run."
