Pitcher’s Fielding Practice

It’s always tough to win an extra inning game on the road, of course, but it’s nearly impossible to do it when pitchers start fielding their position like Chuck Finley.  

We’re big fans of Scot Shields, always will be, but it seems like he needs to pay more attention during PFP.  Or maybe less, we’re not sure.       

Shields’ error wasn’t the only fielding play by an Angel pitcher that cost the team a run.  In the bottom of the first, with runners on first and third, and one out, Adrian Beltre hit a soft comebacker to Shane Loux.  Loux, excited at the possibility of an inning-ending double play, threw to second base instead of to home, where Ronny Cedeno would have been easily thrown out.
