Koji Uehara: My command of split-finger is off


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Red Sox closer Koji Uehara has blamed fatigue and poor control of his split-finger fastball for his recent struggles.

Uehara gave up a run to lose the game Tuesday night against the Cubs and has yielded four runs in his last seven innings. He is still 18 for 19 in save situations.

"I think the command of my split is not quite where I want it to be," Uehara told the Boston Herald.

Boston catcher A.J. Pierzynski doesn't see a problem, however. And in expressing his feelings, he tossed an insult to the media.

"The stuff looks the same," he said. "(The Cubs) hit a couple of pretty good pitches tonight. That's it. Those things happen. He's looked pretty darned good all year. He gave up a run. ... It's not like he's been getting crushed all over the yard. He got a bunch of saves on the road trip. He threw the ball fine. I don't know what you guys want."
