It didn’t take former Toombs County Bulldog Jeremy Beasley very long to make an impression on his new league. On the day (May 17, 2018) he was officially promoted to Inland Empire 66ers of the Advanced Single A California League Jeremy earned a save and had the other team squawking about his quick pace- a Beasley trait going all the way back to his Bulldog days. Beasley pitched four innings in relief- from the sixth through the ninth inning an was rewarded with a save in the 66ers 7-4 win at Lake Elsinore.
Jeremy allowed two hits and two earned runs while striking out five and walking two in his four frames of his fourth professional team before a crowd of 2,055.
Beasley entered the game with Inland Empire leading 5-2 and he retired the Storm three-up, three down on two three-pitch swinging strikeouts which surrounded a 1-2 ground out to first base.
In the seventh inning he yielded a 1-2 single and then retired Lake Elsinore on a fly ball to right, a fly out to center and a 3-2 swinging K.
In the 8th Jeremy walked the leadoff hitter on a 3-2 pitch. Luis Torrens (a .292 hitter who went 3-for-4) tripled to left to make it 5-3 Inland Empire. Beeasley struck out the next batter swinging on a 2-2 pitch and then gave up his second and final run on a sacrifice fly to center field. The inning ended on a 1-2 pitch ground out to second base.
Beasley bounced back and ruled the bottom of the ninth inning with a strikeout swinging on a 1-2 count, a ground out to third on a 1-1 offering and he ended the game retiring the final batter on an 0-1 pitch with a popup to first base.
