From Bryon Kerr:
“They were aggressive early, especially slider, cutter,” Bieber said. “Didn’t execute very well at all, especially early. Ended up making an adjustment, which proved to be the right adjustment, just a little too late. More hard inside and fastballs in, a little bit more fastball aggressive and, on a day like today with the heat, it was coming out a little bit better. I would’ve liked to make that change earlier. That’s on me.”
Bieber relied on Zunino’s advice as they made adjustments to stay in the game.
“[Zunino] and I have a great connection going early on, and we’ve got communication constantly throughout games, especially in the early innings today,” Bieber said. “The communication and kind of grinding out innings and outings with him has been fun from the start.”
