Lucas: The Right Man On The Mound

Sunday, May 14, 2006

"The game is so mentally draining," Robert Woodsrd said. "I fell behind 3-1 to Doolittle. We were up 5-0 but I knew I couldn't give up a leadoff walk right there. The park is big so you've got to make a good pitch and let your defense make the play." Seems simple, right? But it's something many pitchers don't understand, and it's what makes Woodard so effective every Saturday for the Tar Heels. He simply knows how to pitch. Solo homers couldn't beat him. Baserunners could. (Tar Heel Blue)
