Hernandez looks back on yesterday's game

David Hernandez's primary goal yesterday was to throw strikes.

He fanned three batters and gave up a solo home run.

That qualifies as throwing strikes.

"My bullpens have been a little shaky. I haven't been able to do it in bullpen sessions, so yesterday was real good. It felt good," he said.

"I wasn't sure how I was going to react going two innings my first time out in a live situation, but it went real well."

The only fastball that Hernandez threw was the two-seamer that he's been experimenting with in camp.

"I feel like I was able to keep the ball more down in the strike zone," he said.
