Derek Lowe came into the 2012 season looking invincible. The Indians pitcher has a winning record of 8-6 even though he has suffered some losses in his last few outings. Lowe looked like he could cruise though the season at the age of 39. We had to stop and remember this is M.L.B., and the season is more like a marathon and not a sprint. Lowe at the age of 39 had a long road ahead of him just like every guy who plays baseball for their lively hood. The Indians are hoping Lowe can regain the form that got him 8 wins before the break.
In Lowe’s last outing against the Angeles he had to work hard to get the win. Lowe pitched six innings and gave up 11 hits and 3 earned runs. One good thing about Lowe is he still has control and hasn’t walk many this year. In his last outing he walk no one. In his last ten outings Lowe only had one game when he walked six, for the most he has only gave a few free bases per game and that has helped Lowe to win.
The Indians are looking for Derek Lowe to start the second half as well as he started his season. If Lowe can control the strike zone and get a head of the hitters, we could see him get to 20 wins, it isn’t UN-conceivable. Lets hope Lowe can go out today when he starts against the Toronto Blue Jays and get some good innings of work in and can help the Cleveland Indians take this series north of the border….
