Silva channeling Ryan Frankllin

From Baker's post-game blog this evening:

He thought his sinker was sharper tonight, as did manager Don Wakamatsu and catcher Kenji Johjima. They all said he was able to command it and spot it where he needed to.

The problem was two change-ups that got golfed for home runs.

"I felt great with my mechanics and everything,'' Silva said. "Besides those two change-ups that I threw, I wouldn't take anything back.''

Wakamatsu on the same subject: "With Silva, I thought we saw a lot more sink than we saw before,'' Wakamatsu said. "It was similar to the last (spring training) outing. It's just too bad that two bad pitches cost us the ballgame.''

Geez - I thought the spirit of Ryan ("I thought I pitched great tonight except for two pitches that got away from me.") Franklin had been exorcised from the clubhouse.  But I guess the demons were granted permission to infest Silva's carcass instead.
