"It's been a challenge for him," Showalter said. "Sometimes, he's really engaged in it and quick to the plate and sometimes he's not. We harp on it since he's been here and it's been a challenge for him throughout his career. It's tough on the catchers because our guys are really good at it if they get a chance. We did some things that didn't help him, too. We had some throwing errors, but when you're so deep in the counts and 30-some pitches in the first inning, that's got everybody kind of on their heels there."
