Cain and Hamels in Control After Two

A few early observations. Cole’s been using his curveball a ton and mostly staying away from his change-up. He’ll whip it out (!) sooner or later to keep the hitters off-balance.

Jimmy likes popping up.

Both pitchers are hovering around 15 pitches per inning. Two balls hit hard so far: Shane Victorino’s line drive leading off and Ryan Howard’s fly ball to center. Need better approaches off Cain other than that.

0-0 in the third.
