In his first two starts for the Burlington Bees of the Class Midwest League Jeremy Beasley took a loss and a no decision and both times he pitched three innings. In his third start, at Cedar Rapids, Beasley threw four innings of one-hit shutout ball and still was not credited with the victory in the Bees 7-2 win. Jeremy threw 44 pitches, 29 for strikes and allowed only a lead off single in the second inning. He stuck out five batters with no walks and left the game with Burlington leading 3-0. A starter who leaves the game after five innings is guaranteed a victory if his team does not give up the lead and wins the game.
The victory went to reliever Sam Pastrone who also tossed four innings allowing three hits and an earned run with five strikeouts and four walks.
Jeremy induced four fly balls to the outfield and three ground balls including one which he handled. A shot back to the mound which grazed off Beasley’s side. He recovered and picked up the ball and underhanded it to first for the out.
Beasley is 0-1 with a 2.70 ERA. He has allowed eight hits and three earned runs in 10 innings of work. He has struck out nine batters without yielding a walk. In his professional career Jeremy has struck out 46 batters and walked only 12.
