one hit in five shutout innings against the Reading Phillies.* He
struck out six and walked one, lowering his ERA to 0.73. First pitch

m.p.h. curveballs and 88 m.p.h. changeups.

*BTW, if you’re in Reading on Friday, I suggest you stop by and
meet Jerry “The King” Lawler. You can also pick up a Lawler
commemorative cup. In other news, the minor leagues rock.
