Compared to his last start, Archie Bradley‘s outing on Wednesday evening was pretty good. On July 25th, he didn’t make it through three innings as he gave up seven runs including a grand slam to the opposing pitcher. It was a different story against the Jackson Generals.
Bradley threw six innings and gave up three earned runs. He allowed four hits and two walks while striking out six. He threw 96 pitches, 55 of them for strikes. what helped Bradley out was that his Mobile BayBears teammates erupted for seven runs in the third inning on the way to a 7-3 victory. The 21-year old righty retired 9 of the first 11 batters he faced with the Generals not picking up a run until the fourth inning. Bradley then surrendered a two-run home run in the sixth to Patrick Kivlehan before striking out Jordy Lara to cap his work.
After tonight, the D’backs’ #1 prospect should next pitch on Monday August 4th against the Mississippi Braves. Check back with us for all of Bradley’s progress.
