Mixed results for Lannan
When the game began, Lannan had an idea of when he’d be making his first career relief appearance, taking over from Wang. But once Wang got hurt, a wrench was thrown into his plans. Chad Durbin came on to finish the third inning and pitch the fourth. Lannan handled innings five through eight with mixed results.
“I felt really good in the first two innings but something happened in that third and fourth,” Lannan said. “I just left the ball up. They weren’t getting solid contact but they were making enough contact to put it in the outfield and base hit me to death. . . . I just kind of got my work in but I wasn’t happy with it at all.”
Lannan allowed four earned runs off seven hits and one walk in four innings of work. He struck out two.
