Contreras, second inning

Adrian Beltre ripped a 2-2 pitch to center for the first hit off of Jose Contreras, leading off the second. Russell Branyan ran the count full on Contreras, before he blew a fastball past the left-handed slugger. Mike Morse struck out swinging on a 2-2 pitch, and Prentice Redman grounded out to shortstop Alexei Ramirez to end the frame.

In total, Contreras threw 44 pitches in the two innings, 26 for strikes, including 15 foul balls. Contreras jumped ahead of every hitter faced but Ken Griffey, Jr. and even dropped down seven times upon delivery. He struck out four.
