In his second start of the season for the Double A Southern League Mobile BayBears, Jeremy Beasley pitched two hitless innings prior to giving up three earned runs in the third inning. Mobile rallied with a six-run fifth and beat the Mississippi Braves 7-5 in Pearl Mississippi.
In the first inning Jeremy induced a groundout to second base on a first pitch, a strikeout on a 1-2 pitch which was foul tipped and caught by the catcher. A walk on a 3-2 pitch preceded Beasley ending the frame with a swinging strikeout on a 2-2 offering.
Jeremy needed only seven pitches- all strikes- to retire the Braves three-up, three down in the second inning. He retired Alejandro Salazar on two pitches on a lineout to right fielder Brandon Marsh. Ray-Patrick Diddier struck out on three pitches swinging and Daniel Lockhart grounded out to second base on two pitches.
In the bottom of the third inning the first three Braves batters reached base on a 3-1 walk and two singles. After a mound visit, Cristan Pache hit his second triple of the season into left scoring three runs. Pache scored on an interference error by Mobile’s third baseman.
Beasley faced three more batters before leaving the game. He induced two groundouts to second base which were sandwiched around a walk on a 3-2 pitch.
Jeremy pitched 2 2/3 innings and allowed three hits and four runs of which three were earned. He struck out three batters and walked three.
Two of the full innings pitched against Mississippi (5-out-6 for the season)were shutout innings and for his career 111 of Jeremy’s 141 complete innings have been shutout innings for a percentage of 78.7%.
