Pete Parise picked up his first win of the season last night after pitching two hitless innings against AA Tulsa. Parise gave up no hits, runs, or walks and struck-out three batters in the outing. Pete came into the game at the top of the 6th inning, with the score tied 5-5. Before being pulled after the 7th inning, Springfield backed Pete up with a 5-run 7th. The Springfield Cardinals ended up winning the game 10-6.
We are very happy that Parise is back to his regular self after being roughed up a little bit by Midland. The Springfield Cardinals are in need of solid relief pitching and Pete Parise is ready to give the team what it needs.
