Yep. He was looking good when I went to bed, and I was just about to check his final line.
Wednesday, 4-10: Carlos Contreras
, Bakersfield. 5.2 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 8 K. From snippets of the radio broadcast, it sounded like he had some nasty breaking stuff going. He buckled the knees of Cody Ross and struck him out. Contreras was a closer last year in Dayton and Bakersfield, and his conversion to starting has gone swimmingly in the early going. After two starts: 9.2 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 13 K. He's a 5-11, 205-pound, 22-year-old right-hander from the D.R. Unfortunately, his effort last night was not enough to give the Blaze their first victory of the season. Brooks Pinckard gave up three runs in the eighth in a 4-2 defeat.
