Lollis said the bigger difference from Single-A to Triple-A wasn't the talent — the pitchers in the California League have plenty of that — but the consistency. For a hitter, it's more of a mind game at the higher level.
"If" Triple-A pitchers "want to try to get you to hit that groundball, they can do it pretty much whenever they want," Lollis said. "It's kind of cool to watch. It's a little tough trying to get that hit. You've got to be smart as a hitter."
