Pallantes walk and opposite field home run given up were the major blemish on his 3 innings. But he did hit 97 on the gun, and struck out 7. I have always thought the pitchers drafted in 2019 might be better than average. Another 2019 draftee Ralston had a good 3 inning outing for Peoria.
Another pitcher who looked good was Junior Fernandez. Hit 98 on the gun, and struck out the side.
Jack “Ricochet” Ralston’s outing was decent, Cardinals27. Jack was the only Chiefs hurler(4) last night who did not surrender an earned run. But he did commit a couple throwing errors on pickoff attempts, which led to a run scoring. Which leads to this perplexing question: If the pitcher’s error results in a run scoring, why would that not be considered an earned run? He was the responsible party. An encouraging night for Malcom Nunez, as he demonstrated some plate discipline, going 1-3 with no whiffs and coaxing 2 free passes.
I really like Pallante. He has the pitches to be more than a backend starter. I wish I could have seen Prater, but Palm Beach has no video. As Pugs mentioned about Ralston’s throwing errors, but he wasn’t alone. I believe there were 4 throwing errors by pitchers last nighty alone. Reminded me of the Tigers pitchers in the 2006 World Series.
