Seth Lugo got a chance with the Gnats as an injury fill in and ran with it. Over 7 starts in the SAL he struck out 39 and walked 6 over 32 IP, holding batters to a .196 mark against him. Its all the more impressive compared to his NYPL numbers where he strugled with command, walking 13 in 34.1 IP and was hit at a .260 clip.
Austin Voth pitched the Suns to a win in game one of the first round, shuting out West Virginia for 5 IP allowing 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out 5. The Nationals selected Voth in the 5th round of this years draft, made 2 starts at the GCL level, 7 at the NYPL level, and finished up the regular season with two for the Suns. Like his teammated from last night he was overmatching the NYPL with a 1.47 ERA and a .193 batting average against, while striking out 42 in 30.2 IP. He managed 9 more strikeouts with 2 walks and 8 hits over 10.2 IP in two starts against Lakewood before the playoff win.
