…and a biting slider that breaks down and away sharply from right-handed hitters.
Impressively, Aumont stayed low in the strike zone.
Although he walked one, reinforcing the fears stemming from his 6.9 BB/9 with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Aumont otherwise avoided trouble, escaping the inning unscathed. Aumont is the first of the trio acquired in the Cliff Lee trade with the Seattle Mariners in December 2009 to make the Majors. The other two, Tyson Gillies and J.C. Ramirez, are patiently biding their time for a similar privilege.
A closer look at Cairo’s gaffe:
But that wasn’t all for Cairo. With runners on first and second with one out, Ryan Howard grounded out to the right side, an easy 3-1 put-out. Cairo doesn’t like getting opposing players out, apparently.
It ended up being for naught as the Phillies could not score despite both of Cairo’s miscues. They would eventually take it on John Mayberry‘s walk-off RBI single in the 11th inning, their sixth extra-inning win on the year and fourth consecutive extra-inning victory.
