Hirsh vs. Gaudin

The Rockies travel to Phoenix to take on the A's. No video for this contest, but mlb.com has a Gameday Audio webcast of the Athletics' announcers. Here's the pitch-by-pitch Gameday link.

What we're wanting from Hirsh is a deep outing, to the sixth inning or so, with better location and pitch selection early in the game to not allow so many free passes. The eleven hits aren't quite the bother to me that the seven walks thus far are, I want to see two or fewer today. This means that the first two innings will be the most crucial of his start, so we'll know right away if we need to worry heading into regular play.
