One might expect Kyle Gunderson and Pete Parise to get off to slow starts this year. Neither of them had ever played full seasons at their respective levels. Gunderson ended last year for High A Potomac, but Parise never pitched in AA before the start of this season. Both have continued to impress. Last night, Gundy and Parise were on the mound and neither gave up a single earned run. Both of their ERAs continue to lead their team’s at 0.00. Can’t beat that!
Dan McGinn tells the story of Gunderson’s outing,
Gunderson picked up the win in relief of the starter Bradley Meyers who worked the first four and two-thirds allowing three runs on five hits. It was the Rice University product’s first win of the season and he combined with fellow righty Jamie Lehman to allow no hits to the Red Sox over the final three and two-thirds innings of the contest. Lehman walked two over two scoreless innings to pick up the save.
Gunderson pitched 1.2 innings, walked 1, gave up no ER, and got the win. For the season he has pitched 2.2 innings and given up no earned runs.
Parise pitched 1.2 innings and gave up no ER. For the season, he has pitched 4.1 innings and given up no earned runs.
