Following up on Friday night’s keys, Michael Kopech may have had one of those moments where he lost a composure point.
Kevan Newman scored his third and final run by singling and getting bunted over to second. After that, Kopech handed him the other 180 feet with a balk and a wild pitch. The balk was the result of getting crossed up with Kevan Smith, and he compounded matters.
“I immediately knew I balked, I was just hoping they didn’t see it,” Kopech said. “Clearly they did. I messed up there. I think the next pitch was an anger pitch. I threw it away and the guy scores. I can’t allow that to happen either. I have to do better.”
That’s from James Fegan’s article, which paints a picture of a guy who already knows he can dominate just about any single plate appearance, but is trying to put it all together for a six- or seven-inning product.
