Chris Flexen predictably struggles in spot start as he continues to look overmatched against major-league pitching

“When you have a guy like (Flexen) come up, the main thing is to throw the ball over the plate and give yourself a chance. The frustrating part is that we didn’t throw enough strikes today to even give ourselves a chance,” Mickey Callaway said. “It’s not as much about who’s up here, but when you’re up here you have to do the right things and you have to throw the ball over the plate. We just didn’t do that tonight, and you’re not gonna win like that no matter who’s pitching.”
