Today we turn our attention to the Herd’s starting pitcher Connor Overton
Signed as a minor league free agent on February 2nd, 2021, Overton made a relief appearance and a start prior to Saturday’s start. Connor had yet to allow a run, surrendering 3 hits across 6 innings while striking out 9 and not issuing any walks.

The 27-yr-old righty threw 47 of his 63 pitches for strikes. He generated 8 groundball outs and 5 flyball outs. He allowed a double in the 1st inning and a leadoff single in the 2nd inning, that’s it. Connor retired 12 straight batters before being pulled for Curtis Taylor in the 7th inning.
The Martin and Groshans Show
Austin Martin batted 2nd and played SS for the Fisher Cats on Saturday. Austin singled to CF in the 1st inning but was left stranded at 3rd base. He sent a fly ball to CF to end the 3rd inning. Martin drove in the game’s first run with a single to LF in the 5th inning, then picked up his 1st professional stolen base. Austin Martin was pinch-hit for by Reggie Pruitt in the 6th inning. He finished 2-for-3 with an RBI and a SB.
Austin Martin delivers! It’s a 1-0 Fisher Cats lead after five innings.
