Twins' Albers effectively pounds strike zone against Royals

Big-league pitchers can throw strikes more often than most of us realize. Once in a while, they’re so wild they can’t find the zone, but it’s much more common for them to miss the strike zone because they want to or because they’re being too fine. Take away the fear that a pitch over the plate will lose the game, and the smart pitchers get very aggressive about throwing strikes. Tuesday night, the Twins' Andrew Albers got an early lead and started pounding the strike zone on his way to a 7-0 win.
