While going 1-for-3, Senzel grounded out to third base on a first pitch in the first inning and grounded out to shortstop in the fourth inning. During his final at-bat in the sixth with one out, he attacked a first pitch for a single to right field and later scored a run.
Senzel, 22, was pleased with his performance overall, and showed he was willing to be aggressive at the plate.
"It was just nice to get out here and see some live pitching and actually playing a game. A little nerves [were there], but it was nice to get out here with these guys," Senzel said. "I'm pretty confident 0-0, and definitely in Spring Training the pitchers are going to attack with a fastball, so I'm definitely not going to let those go by. If it's not a strike, it's nice to extend an at-bat to see some other pitches other than a fastball just to kind of get some timing and rhythm down. If it's there first pitch, I'm definitely going to be hacking."
So far, the reviews about Senzel in his first big league camp have been positive. The second overall pick in the 2016 Draft, MLB Pipeline ranks him as the seventh-best prospect overall and No. 1 in the organization. Although he's expected to begin the season at Triple-A Louisville, Senzel is hoping to play his way onto the 25-man roster.
"Well, he's a professional kid," Price said. "I don't think any of this is overwhelming. If it is, he does a great job of not showing it. He comes across as very confident in his ability with a good understanding of what makes him successful. I am looking forward to seeing him in games."
