Rangers' Ross Detwiler blasted in season debut Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Rangers pitcher Ross Detwiler surrendered eight runs (six earned) on nine hits and two walks in 4 1/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 10-0 loss to the A's Wednesday.

"He lost command of the fastball in," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said, per ESPN. "That really set the ball rolling for him. The breaking ball wasn't in the strike zone as much as he wanted. I'm proud of how he continued to compete, continued to go out and battle. It was a learning experience for him."

Detwiler was able to hold the A's scoreless through the first two innings before the Oakland offense broke through with a five-spot in the third and continued the run barrage through the middle innings. Detwiler will take a 12.46 ERA into Monday's scheduled matchup against the Angels.

"I don't think I really had command of the inside the entire game," Detwiler said. "It kind of allows them to dive out there and really protect the outside. If that's the only way I'm throwing strikes, then that's going to play right into their hand. It was one time through the lineup and they realized that I wasn't throwing any strikes in so they took it out of their mind.

"Command was terrible today. If I want to help this team compete, I need to be a lot better than what I was today."
