Scott Feldman eyes first win
|Ben and Skin present their weekly Power Rankings and you might be surprised at who tops the list.
"You can always look for something positive," Feldman said. "The last (start),I think things were going a lot better. I felt like I was staying tall on my backside better and executing my pitches a little more."
Feldman has been in the starting rotation for a couple of weeks, and he's starting to feel more comfortable in the role.
"I feel great," Feldman said. "Hopefully, I can just pitch well enough to get to 110-120 pitches. ... I feel like I'm bouncing back well."
It could be said that Feldman has had some bad luck with the way the defense has played behind him, but he isn't going to let that effect him on the mound.
"Baseball is baseball," Feldman said. "Some funny stuff happens sometimes. But we have a good team here, and hopefully, things will turn around."
Who knows, maybe that turnaround will be Thursday night.
