Down on the farm, Jake Arrieta made his final start for Single-A Frederick last night before joining Team USA, tossing seven scoreless innings and striking out eight.
“Bergy pretty much had it going right from the get-go. I could tell down in the bullpen,” Baysox pitching coach Mike Griffin said. “You know, I can usually tell what kind of possible start we could have when the starter’s warming up out there. Something told me from his demeanor on the mound warming up in the bullpen and the way he was finishing.”
Single-A Delmarva’s Sean Gleason, a 20th-round pick in last year’s draft, tossed a complete-game shutout yesterday, allowing only two hits in a 3-0 win over Hickory. He faced one batter over the minimum. Gleason posted a 2.93 ERA last year at Bluefield.
