Brian Matusz: Seeing is Beleiving

This evening (Tuesday, July 7) I was treated to the pitching performance of the year for the organization.  In front of a somewhat sparse crowd in Bowie, MD, Brian Matusz made the Harrisburg Senators look like a junior league team.  Granted, the Sens are the AA affiliate of the Washington Natinals and are not very talent-laden.  But hey, eight innings of one-hit ball is nothing to sneeze at no matter who the foe. 

The weather was wonderful and the Baysox were having their version of t-shirt Tuesday with a sparkling white Matt Wieters edition.  Matusz was on his game from the start, recording strikeouts (many looking) early and often.  Contact was few and far between, with many weak foul balls and pop-ups for easy put outs.  Brian was toying with the Senators, featuring a low-mid 90's fastball that was spotted with ease and a sharp-breaking curve ball that found the zone with consistency.  When he needed to, Matusz turned to a relatively effective change-up that left some hitters buckled.

Another thing that had many fans taking notice was the fact that Brian was waiting for his teammates after each inning on defense at the dugout to show his appreciation for their defensive efforts.  He was also leading the cheer from the bench during the various offensive outbursts.  Following the game Matusz greeted fans along the home-side stands, signing autographs and briefly chatting.  I was able to congratulate him and obtain a few sigs before he continued into the clubhouse. 

Great day in what will hopefully be a great career...Go O's!!
