A’s Prospect Of The Day: Beloit Snappers Pitcher Kyle Friedrichs (4 IP / 5 H / 0 ER / 1 BB / 2 K)

 

MIDWEST LEAGUE  (Class-A)

Beloit Snappers        0

Clinton LumberKings  3

LP – Driver 0-1 / 4.76

Prospect Of The Game:

Pitcher Kyle Friedrichs

(4 IP / 5 H / 0 ER / 1 BB / 2 K)

The Snappers were shut out on just 2 hits on Tuesday night. Second baseman Jesus Lopez doubled to lead off the 3rd inning and designated hitter Trent Gilbert singled to lead off the 4th. Starter Dustin Driver walked the first 3 batters he faced to load the bases in the bottom of the 1st inning and ended up allowing 3 runs to score in the inning, which would turn out to be the only runs of the game. All told, Driver was charged with 3 runs, 4 hits and 4 walks over just 2 2/3 innings to take the loss. But RHP Kyle Friedrichs came in and tossed 4 shutout innings in relief. And combined with his impressive opening day start, last year’s 7th-round draft pick for the A’s has now thrown 9 scoreless innings to start the season.
