Some guy that’s older than me (he is 35), Chris Michalak, pitched 6 solid innings giving up 3 hits, 2 BB, and no ER. He struck out 5. 23 year-old Ryan Wagner gave up 3 hits and 1 ER in an inning of work. He did strike out 3.
The Lookouts received some more solid starting pitching as 26- year old Edward Valdez pitched 5 innings allowing only 1 h and 1 BB. He struck out 4. Valdez is repeating at AA, where last year he went 1-3 with a 6.94 ERA in 12 games.
Quinton McCracken proved his about ready to help out the Reds with an 0-4 performance. “DOTF” Poster Boy Adam Rosales hit his second double of the year and added a BB and 2 R. 22 year-old Adam is right where he left off last season hitting .333/.429/.611.
23 year-old, 2003 12th round draft pick, Jim Paduch pitched 6 shakey innings giving up 7 hits and only striking out 2. However he was able to hold Clearwater to just one earned run. Jim is repeating at Sarasota where last year he posted a 3.81 ERA with only 66 strikeouts in 104 innings.
Well I am trying to find something bright…..look away, there is nothing to see here.
