Breaking: Angels Stud Sean Newcomb, Throws 7 No Hit-Innings

Breaking News: Sean Newcomb

The Angels pitching this year has been a roller coaster, but with high hopes of their young star Sean Newcomb, the future looks bright. Sean Newcomb just finished his night with the Double-A Arkansas Travelers and was pulled in the 7th as he allowed zero hits. Newcomb probably could have finished off the night with a no hitter, but as solid as this rising star is, no need to risk anything. For Newcomb, reaching the bigs healthy is far more important then getting a no hitter in Double-A. Newcomb usually goes until around 70 pitches have been thrown. Today Newcomb stroke out six and only walked one.

Here at Sean Newcomb’s last four outings including tonight.

August 7th, No Decision, 6 Innings, 2 Hits, 0 earned runs

August 13th, Win, 5 Innings, 3 Hits, 1 earned run

August 19th, Win, 5 Innings, 5 Hits, 1 earned run

August 25th (Today) Win, 7 Innings, 0 Hits, o earned runs

ERA last four games, 0.50, yeah pretty amazing.

So when will the call-up be for Triple-A? Pretty Sure the Salt Lake City Bee’s could use him.
