McGee's debut with Biscuits

Jake McGee is off to a not-so-great start.

first inning: 3 runs, 2 hits, 4 walks, 43 pitches, 18 strikes, 1 Bronx cheer for throwing a strike, 1 strikeout
bottom of first: Biscuits tie it
inning took a mere 36 minutes, three shy of Wednesday's eight-run first inning, but the 75 total pitches was one more than Wednesday's Wade Davis-James Avery "masterpiece"

second inning: 1 run, 3 hits, 1 walk, 32 more pitches, 23 strikes, 3 strikeouts
it's taken 54 minutes to get nine outs ... yikes

third inning: greetings, Tony Peguero

hmm ...
Davis on Wednesday
2 1/3 innings, 7 hits, 5 runs, 2 walks, 5 strikeouts, 75 pitches, 40 strikes

McGee on Thursday
2 innings, 5 hits, 4 runs, 6 walks, 4 strikeouts, 75 pitches, 41 strikes

Intriguing run in the third, from XM's 80's Channel:
Jody Watley's "Looking for a New Love" (one youthful employee inquired if it was Madonna)
Glass Tiger's "Someday"
Phil Collins' "One More Night"
(Hey, the game's 90 minutes old and we're still in the third. Cut me some slack.)
