Roy Oswalt had a hard time in his last start at Triple-A Round Rock. Last night he took it down a notch, pitching for Double-A Frisco. And the results were actually worse.
Oswalt allowed three runs on five hits and two walks over just 3 1/3 innings. He also threw a wild pitch. It took him 85 pitches to not even make it through the fourth inning.
Oswalt is scheduled to make one more minor league start. Anyone wanna try A-ball?
