Willis tonight at Lakeland
He gave up three earned runs on four hits over 4 1/3 innings with three walks and three strikeouts. He threw 37 of his 73 pitches for strikes. Here’s the story on the site.
Our MLB.com reporter covering the game, Brittany Ghiroli, was told by someone in the Lakeland Flying Tigers front office that no one would be available for postgame comment and was initially kept out of the clubhouse. Willis eventually talked on his own against those orders, not that anyone in the minors should be trying to tell him what to do in the first place.
