the Binghamton home opener highlights the nights action.
Logan Verrett let in 3 runs on 4 hits (1HR) and 2 BB in his first start, striking out 2 over 6 IP. Binghamton went 33-37 at home last year, splitting ten against NH. B-Met pitchers have totaled 48 strike outs to 13 walks so far, with the starters racking up a 34 to 5 mark. Countering that B-Mets batters have struck out 50 times and walked 18 times.
Deck McGuire first start of 2013 (4.2 IP, 6 hits, 3 BB, 7 K) went a lot like his 2012 with New Hampshire where he gave up 162 hits and 62 BB in 144 IP. The Blue Jays 2010 first round pick (11th overall) out of Georgia Tech stands 6’6″ features deception and decent command of a sinking fastball.
Domingo Tapia‘s first start was a 6 inning shutout no decision in which he struck out 3 walked 1 and allowed 4 hits, with 10 ground outs.
As we learned yesterday Sam Gaviglio allowed 1 run on 3 hits over 5 IP in his first start, striking out 5 and walking none.
Postponed due to inclement weather.
Savannah will return to Rome in June and twice in August, a double header tomorrow is not in the plans.
Collin McHugh got off to a good start five days ago, 7 K, 1 BB, 4 hits, 1 ER over 5.1 IP
Andrew Kown is making his 49th start for Fresno, pitching there for the last two years. He posted a 5.06 ERA, 1.53 whip, and a .293 BAA in 2012, walking 44 and allowing 14 homers. Reese Havens has played mostly 3B and is off to a .357/.412/.357 with 2 BB and 2 K in 14 AB exclusively facing RH pitching.
