A & AA – Moanaroa, O’Neill, Welch, T Kennelly, Russell, Tanner
Clayton Tanner threw 2 scoreless innings for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos in their 9-3 win over the Jacksonville Suns. He relieved in the 6th & 7th allowing 1 hit and retiring the other batters who faced him. His ERA stands at a very healthy 1.64 after 9 games.
Mississippi Braves‘ Andrew Russell hsd maintained his 0.00ERA after producing another scoreless inning for the Braves in their 5-4 loss to the Hunstville Stars. Andrew threw the 7th allowing 1 hit and getting 1K and 2 groundouts. Andrew has now appeared in 9 games without giving up a run.
Tim Kennelly was 2-4 for the Reading Phillies who were edged 2-1 by the Richmond Flying Squirrels. Even with the loss, Reading still has not lost a series this season. They have won four series, including a sweep against the Portland Sea Dogs, and split two.
* The Mets’ Adam O’Neill reports that he is now throwing 120ft for the first time since returning to camp following his Tommy John surgery last year. He says his arm felt great, staying behind the baseball and his release point is feeling back to normal if not better. He is throwing change ups for the 1st time since his surgery and says it felt good throwing those as well with no pain. Sounds like everything is going to plan for Adam.
