WHO CAME THROUGH
- LHP Chris Reed, the former Dodgers’ first-rounder acquired last season by the Marlins, pitched his third straight solid game for Triple-A New Orleans on Thursday night. Reed pitched 6 innings while allowing just 2 hits, 2 walks, and no runs. Reed struck out 6. Reed was terrible in his second start for the Zephyrs on May 17, but over his last three games since then, Reed has pitched 18 innings and allowed 2 runs, 7 walks, 8 hits, and 19 strikeouts—a dominating line. Perhaps the lefty can find the bit of magic that made him so successful as a Stanford reliever in college.
- Nobody for Double-A Jacksonville hit particularly well on Thursday night, as the team collectively put just 7 runners on base in the 1-0 loss to Montgomery. However, 3B Brian Anderson especially did little to help the cause by going 0 for 3 with a strikeout. Anderson has collected just 1 hit in 11 PAs since being promoted to Jacksonville three games ago, but that’s ignoring the 3 walks he collected last game.
- RHP Austin Brice, who won the organization’s Minor League Pitcher of the month award in April and followed that up with a month of May that saw him pitch to a 3.25 ERA. Brice started out June even stronger by pitching 6.2 innings while giving up just 1 unearned run for Double-A Jacksonville on Thursday.
- C Tomas Telis had gone three games without a hit before the Zephyrs benched him on Wednesday. He got the start today at Triple-A New Orleans- but instead of at his native catcher, he played at first base. The positional switch seems to have done him some good, as he broke the slump by going 1-for-4.
