Thursday 4/7/2062: Michael Wacha pitches 1-hit shutout against Milwaukee
FAIRFAX - Michael Wacha had his best stuff going, and Milwaukee hitters were chanceless. Fairfax's right-hander fired a 1-hitter, his 1st shutout of the season. Wacha (1-0) struck out 4 and walked 2, throwing 71 of 112 pitches for strikes. 'Things like that happen. You take the mound and everything works. My velocity was pretty good today and I guess it showed.' Fairfax's third baseman Buster Posey collected 1 hit in 3 trips to the plate. That was enough to support the brilliant performance of Wacha. Fairfax scored 1 run on 3 hits.
