Thursday, June 28th POD goes to Jon Harris

 

Jon Harris was called up to make a spot start for the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons on Thursday and responded with his 2nd best start of the season. His best start came earlier this month when he no-hit the Akron RubberDucks over six innings.

 

Harris threw 51 of his 81 pitches for strikes. Batters looked at 15 pitches for strikes and swung through 9 pitches for strikes. Jon Harris induced 12 groundball, 9 for outs, and 4 flyballs, 2 for outs, while limiting the Pawtucket Red Sox to just 2 line drives.

 

The former 1st round selection surrendered a one-out single to Ivan De Jesus in the 1st inning and got Adam Lind to fly out and Mike Olt to ground out for a scoreless frame. The 6-foot-4 right-hander put the Red Sox down in order between the 2nd and 5th innings.

 

In the 6th inning, Harris got Cole Sturgeon to swing through strike three for the first out but Deiner Lopez laid down a bunt single. Harris threw it away for a throwing error and Lopez ended up at 2nd base. Lopez scored two batters later on a De Jesus single for Harris’ only blemish. Harris got Adam Lind to line out to end the inning.

 

The native of St. Louis, MO, exited the game with the Herd up 6 to 1 and earned his first Triple-A victory in his Triple-A debut.

 

On the season, Jon Harris had a terrible April, a not so great May, and a very good June. Over the past 30 days, the 24-yr-old has 4 wins and no loses in 5 starts over 29IP. He has allowed 23 hits (BA .213) while walking 2 batters and striking out 27. He owns a 0.862 WHIP, a 2.17 ERA, and 8.4 K/9 during this period. This has allowed Harris to improve his overall numbers of 7-3, 4.41 ERA over 15 starts.
