A Great Day For the Somerset Patriots: First, the Patriots come from behind and win a wild game against the York Revolution, 6-5.
Earlier in the day, the Kansas City Royals recalled P Jason Shiell. Shiell was a starting pitcher on the 2006 version of the Patriots, throwing his first professional pitches in two years after undergoing two arm surgeries.
Later that season, he was picked up, and found himself starting for the Atlanta Braves before the year was out.
Then, the Philadelphia Phillies called up P Kane Davis, who pitched the final two innings of the Phillies win over the Marlins last night.
He allowed three and struck out one, but didn’t give up a run.
Davis appeared in 13 games for Somerset last season, but it’s certainly worth noting that those 13 games came over a span of a month and a half. Davis was injured before coming to Somerset, and needed time to work his arm back into shape, so Patriots fans didn’t get to see the real Kane Davis last year.
And The Number Is: 59. That’s how many Yankees I’d interviewed in my career at the time the contest started. The number now stands at 61, with the recent additions of Gary Sheffield and Ian Kennedy.
The person who had the closest guess will receive an e-mail informing them of their victory, and a set of 2007 Somerset Patriots baseball cards, courtesy of the Patriots and myself.
