I went to the Lake County Captains game last night against the Greenville Drive.  Daniel Bard was the starting pitcher for the Drive.  He was all over the place.  If you read the BA mini-update on him, you know that he had 3 wild pitches.  But he was missing his spots up, down, in, out.  He also had a hit batter that was called a ball.  I believe it was Beau Mills (lefty) that did a little bounce-back to try to move out of the way and the ball still hit him on the top of his back foot.  The next pitch was a ball and Mills walked.

Aaron Fultz also threw an inning for LC.  He looked good in his rehab outing.  His breaking ball was in full effect and his fastball also looked good.  1, 2, 3 inning.

The best outing of the day had to be from the Darts catcher Ryan Smythe.  He had two home runs, the second of which was a no-doubt shot out of the stadium in the eigth (I think).  He was also very active behind the plate, getting into good position on a short pop foul and just missed a catch while diving for a foul bunt attempt.

Saw Ryan Juhl start at catcher, but he didn't do anything that I thought stood out.

Josh Papelbon (John's brother) also played.  He's a righty submariner that did pretty well.  He kept the ball low, but that's about all I recall.

Sorry there isn't more to this, but it was an outing with co-workers and I wasn't really paying full attention to the game.  Just some things that stood out.
