Well pitched game

Outside of Farnsworth (of course). Kennedy pitched 4.1 solid innings, allowing just one run, six Ks and no walks. Joba pitched a dominant 7th, striking out the side on 11 pitches (using just his fastball and slider). His FB ranged from 94 to 96 with good command, while his slider looked the best it has all spring (low 80s) - it had more of a diving action and less lateral movement than last year. I don't know if it was the camera angle or something that Dave Eiland is teaching him, but it had nasty downward break, like it was dropping off a table. We shouldn't get too excited though, as all three batters are minor leaguers.

Elsewhere, BPro summed up the top prospects in the AL East. (Thanks to Steve for the link.)
