Stat-urday, 9/9/2017


Alec Asher pitched for the Bowie Baysox in the first round of the Eastern League playoffs yesterday. He pitched 1.2 innings, gave up 5 hits and 3 earned runs, racking up a 16.20 ERA for his efforts. The Baysox lost 8-4. 


What I don’t understand is why was he pitching for us in the first place? Asher pitched in only 34 games all season, none of them with Bowie. The time he spent in the minors this year was with the Orioles AAA affiliate, the Norfolk Tides. And he only pitched in 10 games with them. 

Was Asher our consolation prize for the O’s taking Austin Hays from us right before the playoffs? I wouldn’t begrudge Hays his MLB playing time, but we’d like to have him for the playoffs. 

The Baysox have lost the first two games of the 5-game series to the Altoona Curve. The series continues in Altoona tonight.
