7/30/09 News & Notes

When Dynasty‘s clients have a solid day, I feel obliged to create a News & Notes piece.  I know that this is coming to you later than normal, but I have been overwhelmed with moving from one house to another.  I finally fond a break in my day, so here you go…

Last night, Dan Leatherman, Pete Parise, and Ryan Kelly had terrific nights.

Dan Leatherman went 1.1 innings, struck out 3 batters, and did not give up a hit, walk, or run.  The Potomac Nationals won the game, and Leatherman lowered his ERA to 3.29.  Also remember that Leatherman currently has a 5-0 record on the year with the High A P-Nats.

Pete Parise must want me to call him Mr. Groundout again, because in 2 innings of work last night, he induced 5 groundouts and struck out one batter.  He only gave up 1 hit, and did not walk any batters nor give up any runs.  Parise’s ERA is at 5.24, which is inflated because of a couple of rough outings.  As he logs more innings in AAA, that number should go down.

Ryan Kelly went 2 innings last night, struck out 3 and gave up 2 hits.  He also gave up no walks or runs in his outing.  Kelly lowered his ERA to 4.33 with the West Virginia Power.
