Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day, and apologies for the lateness on this recap. This will be a quick one.
With Memorial Day thrown in, and a double header last Monday, it was a successful 7-2 week for the Fightins. Perci Garner kicked off the week with a 6 IP, 6 H, 3 BB, 3 K performance in the first game of the double header against New Hampshire and then went six innings against Akron on the 24th. His control was a bit of an issue, with 51 strikes/36 balls in the first start and 53 strikes/42 balls in the second start. That being said, that’s about where Garner has now fallen here in 2014, so those numbers are right around average.
Nefi Ogando didn’t have as hot a week as he did last week, but still picked up a win and two saves.
Mike Nesseth is now 1-4 with a 10.80 ERA since becoming a starter. He struggled again this week, and at this point, he is likely nearing his end in this starting experiment.
If you’re into Cam Perkins Watch 2014, he went 10-for-33 for the week, with 4 doubles and 5 RBI.
Questions to consider:
1. Is Michael Nesseth done as a starter?
2. Can we see Biddle go deep again? His last three starts are 6 IP, 6 IP, and 5.1 IP.
3. What kind of playing time will Everett Williams see as the “new guy” in town?
3 games at home vs. Trenton
3 on the road at Erie
