“At that point, it's pretty much just scrambling and trying to make sure you get loose,” Wright said.
Wright wound up throwing a season-high four innings, giving up just one hit and walking two as the RedHawks won the first game 2-0.
“When you're going four innings and you haven't been doing that, you just try to reserve as much as possible,” Wright said. “I tried to pitch mostly off my fastball and make guys put the ball in play and fortunately they hit a couple balls at people.”
Wright hopes he can build off the performance as hi goes back to his role in the bullpen.
“Confidence is the most important thing in this game and there's no doubt that that was a boost,” Wright said.
So was the sidearm experiment, even if it was a short-lived one.
“I really showed me that I didn't have to overthrow,” Wright said. “I've just got to put the ball in a great location and the results will be there.”
