    Frame (verb)

    I have a question about the usage of verb "frame" here:

    But that doesn't mean the fiery right-hander will be idle after setting the tone with 5-2/3 innings of stingy pitching in a 6-2 Giants victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday, framing the upcoming National League West showdown in a most proper way.
    According to dictionaries, the two senses that remotely fit the current example are 1) frame a plan (develop) or 2) frame a comment/question/answer (express it in some way).

    But neither definition seems to fit the current example. Could there be an error in the example?

    Re: Frame (verb)

    It is meant in the sense of setting the stage. We are anticipating what that one will do because he is pitching quite well.

    Re: Frame (verb)

    So, it was poorly written?

    No, it was OK. Tarheel gave you the correct interpretation.
