A couple of things aside from bad pitching -- seven runs, 10 hits allowed in four innings -- went against Masterson: a first-inning double that Ezequiel Carrera lost in the sun that led to a run and a bloop that fell between Carrera and Asdrubal Cabrera (either could have caught the ball) later on.
To that, Masterson said, ""That's part of the game. It's OK. But sometimes I think that outside forces are trying to bring me down.''
Masterson seemed to be smiling when he said that.
