Sheboygan, WI - It was quite the debut Wednesday night for Adam Eck.
After giving up a hit on the first pitch of the game, committing an error on the second pitch of the game allowing both runners to be safe, and a wild pitch on the third pitch of the game, Eck settled in a struck out the next three batters. That was only a preview of what was to come.
Eck struck out 16 batters in his seven innings of work while walking only two as the Sheboygan A's defeated the Green Bay Storm 7-1. The victory snapped a four-game slide by the A's.
Eck threw 76 of his 107 pitches for strikes, averaging just over 15 pitches thrown per inning.
After a scoreless first inning, the A's put runs on the board in the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth innings.
Chris Saltzman is starting to heat up at the plate, which is a welcomed sight for an A's offense that has been cold the last few games. Saltzman smacked his third home run of the season with a two-run shot in the second inning. He also added an RBI single later in the game.
The A's are back home tonight for Star Wars Night. A couple of characters from Star Wars will be in attendance for photo opportunities, prize giveaways, and free general admission tickets for anyone wearing Star Wars apparel. First pitch is at 7:30 PM.
The Sheboygan A's are members of the Wisconsin State League and Northeastern Wisconsin Baseball League. The A's have helped develop more than 41 players that have reached professional baseball, including 2002 World Series Champion Jarrod Washburn (Anaheim Angels). All Sheboygan A's home games are played at Wildwood Baseball Park in Sheboygan. Connect with the A's on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.comments powered by Disqus
