Ryan Dempster Aims to Cut Down on ‘Unnecessary Walks’ After Another Shaky Start (Video)

Ryan Dempster did not have his best stuff Thursday night, allowing four runs on five hits and four walks in what turned into a 12-3 win for the Indians. The three innings pitched were a season-low for the veteran right-hander, who was critical of his performance in the clubhouse after the game.

“My command’s been terrible,” Dempster said. “I’ve walked 10 guys in my last nine innings, and they’re unnecessary walks. I have to fix that. … The last couple games I haven’t been throwing the ball where I want to throw it. I’ll get back to doing that.”
