Japan completely tagged almost every pitch Roy O could muster. He gave up up six runs and six hits in 3 2-3 innings. He walked four and struck out one. The Houston Astros right-hander was 1-1 in three WBC starts, allowing nine runs, seven earned, in 11 1-3 innings. Not the best performance I have seen him give, but he got the rust out, performed well in most situations and now at least he'll be back at camp ready to go. No need to be worried about Roy Oswalt though, he has been one of the most consistent pitchers in the show since 2003 or so.
