Antonio Senzatela dazzled on the mound Wednesday, allowing just four hits and zero runs over eight innings. He walked two batters and struck out three. The 26-year-old was pulled one inning shy of a complete game shutout but still earned the win.
It was a very strong bounce-back effort from the right-hander, who allowed seven runs over 3.1 innings in his season debut against the Dodgers last week. Senzatela's strikeout rate remains low, but that's not a major concern when you toss eight innings of scoreless baseball.
