"Every pitch was working the way I wanted it to," said Perez, who allowed one run and two hits over 6 2/3 innings, striking out six and walking two. "I felt limber and very confident. I'll just continue working and see what happens."Feeling limber?
Also worth noting: Mac regrets letting Perez start the seventh.
"I shouldn't have let him go back out there," McClendon said. "I was kicking myself because we really could have lost that game. I should have known that."We're all for starters going six innings if they are going to pitch as well as Perez pitched today.
