Spencer Strider has found his mark in his last 1 outings, throwing a total of 14 innings, giving up 4 hits, 0 runs, and striking out 16. He’ll be facing off against Logan Webb, who was pitching pretty well before he ran into the Braves offense last week and gave up 9 hits and 4 runs in 6 innings. Still, it’s a great pitching matchup and both offenses have their work cut out for them.
Michael Soroka Update
Soroka pitched for the Stripers tonight and through 5 innings, he was cruising: 0 runs, 0 hits. Unfortunately, the 6th inning was overkill: walk, single, double, single, and pulled. Soroka was charged with 4 runs, but was an absolute monster on the mound until he got bad lucked to death. If the Braves keep him down until September 13th, they’ll gain an extra year of control and I’m guessing that will be the course they take.
