Chris Lee faced Kingsport three times in the regular season. In each start he failed to complete the 5th inning or record a decision. As a 21 year old in his 3rd year with the Greeneville Astros he has a limited workload. In 13 IP against the K-Mets he gave up 6 runs, 5 earned on 13 hits and 6 walks while striking out 10. While pitching a quarter of his total innings against Kingsport this year he has allowed them a third of his hits and walks, and under 20% of his strikeouts.
Carlos Gomez made 3 starts at the beginning of the year, allowing no runs on 8 hits and 4 walks, striking out 7 over 17.1 IP. He was sidelined for five weeks with shoulder trouble, returning to throw 5.2 IP over two relief appearances. He allowed 6 hits and no walks while striking out 5 after returning. 3 of his 4 walks came against Greeneville in his last start before landing on the DL. He allowed just 2 hits over 5.2 IP that day, and picked up the win.
