Thursday, July 19th POD goes to the Vancouver C’s pitchers.
The group of Joey Murray, Sean Wymer, Fitz Stadler, and Connor Law combined to throw 9 innings of 2-hit shutout baseball against the Hillsboro Hops.
Joey Murray, this year’s 8th round selection, started the game off with a 1-2-3 first inning. He got the first two batters to ground out and fly out to start the 2nd inning but surrendered a single to Jake McCarthy. A failed pickoff attempt allowed McCarthy to advance to 2nd base. Murray surrendered back-to-back walks to load the bases before inducing a groundball to Vinny Capra who tossed it to 2nd baseman Nick Podkul to end the inning.
Sean Wymer, this year’s 4th round selection, entered the game in the 3rd inning and got 3-outs on 10 pitches. He allowed a leadoff single to start the 4th inning but got a groundball out and two swinging strikeouts to end the frame. He finished his night with a 1-2-3 5th inning and struck out two more batters.
Fitz Stadler, this year’s 18th round selection, needed just 9 pitches to have a 1-2-3 6th inning and sandwiched a groundball out between a pair of swinging strikeouts in the 7th inning. He walked the first batter of the 8th inning before inducing an infield fly ball out, and two strikeouts for a strong 3 inning of relief.
Connor Law entered the game in the 9th and needed just four pitches to get the first two outs before striking Joey Rose out on 3 pitches.
Great game boys.
