Execution

Jeremy Guthrie was pleased with his night at the office Thursday, if also disheartened by the end result. Guthrie felt that he threw the ball well for most of the night, but he noted that he can’t be satisfied with allowing two home runs and five runs in a 5-2 loss.

Interestingly, the right-hander said that the two homers — both by Bobby Abreu — came on divergent efforts. The first came on a poorly located changeup, but the second one, a three-run shot that changed the game, came on a fastball that went right where he wanted it.

“On the second home run, I don’t really know,” he said after the game. “It really surprised me that he put that much barrel on the ball and he was able to hit it out like that.”
