Judging the Royals

The Twins pitchers fall behind in the count and the score

Top of the first inning: two runners on and one out, Billy Butler at the plate. Twins starting pitcher P.J. Walters threw Billy a cutter for a ball, a changeup for a strike and a fastball in the dirt. The count stood at 2-1. Had Walters thrown the fastball for a strike the count would have been 1-2. (Assuming Billy didn’t hit it and for the sake of argument, let’s say he didn’t.)
