Another encouraging outing from the Ho 

7 shutout innings against Seattle.

This makes three solid starts in a row for the Ho...and yeah, I'm counting the loss to Anaheim as a solid start. Virtually none of the 8 singles he allowed in that game were hard-hit balls, and he walked just one man while striking out 5 in 6 innings.

In today's game, he had 3 walks to 5 Ks, which isn't as good a ratio as you'd like to see...but still, he threw strikes once again, and dealt with adversity well. In three starts now, he's thrown 290 pitches, 198 of them for strikes, with 18 strikeouts and just 5 walks. If Park keeps throwing almost 70% of his pitches for strikes, and keeps hitting 95 mph, as he did today, the Rangers may have a decent pitcher on their hands. Not the #1 starter that he's being paid like, but possibly a low #2/high #3 starter, which is what he was in Los Angeles.
