In an 11 AM start, on a drizzly, warm day, LHP Angel Cuan allowed just one hit, that on a bunt on the wet grass in six innings of work fanning nine without issuing a walk. There's no magic to Cuan (9-1, 3.02), he throws lots of strikes with all three of his pitches and lets South Atlantic League hitters get themselves out. I think, however, that his command, the ability to throw good strikes, has gotten a little better. His last three starts: 1.50 ERA, 18 IP, 10 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 14 K.
Alonzo Harris (.273/.335/.339) tripled to deep center to drive home the Gnats' first run.
We're not on air for day games, so I hopped over to the other side of the pressbox to do PA for this one. I do PA for college games and other events at the ballpark in the early spring fairly regularly, but I think it was the first time I've done PA for a minor league game since 2004. It was fun in its way.
