When Alex Cobb is on his game he kills a lot of worms with a ton of ground ball outs and that is exactly what we saw against the Blue Jays today.
Cobb faced 12 batters in his 3+ innings of work. Of those 12 batters, Cobb induced seven into ground ball outs and another batter reached on an infield ground ball single. Of the other four batters, one struck out, one walked, one flied out, and the other reached on a line drive single.
12 batters. 8 ground balls. 1 fly ball. And only 1 ball hit hard.
Here are all 8 ground balls.
