Around the Farm 4/14

Welcome to another edition of Around the Farm. This is a daily update taking you are the Texas Rangers farm system and going over the highlights of each game.

Let’s start with the Triple- A affiliate of the Texas Rangers.

Nashville Sounds (3-8)

Taylor Hearn (1-2, 3.86 ERA) got his 3rd start of the season today. He pitched 4 innings and allowed only 1 run on 2 hits. The strikeout pitch was working as he struck out 7 but he also walked 3. One of those walks, he issued with the bases loaded, walking in the run in the bottom of the 7th. He also had a wild pitch and hit a batter as well.

C.D. Pelham (18.90 ERA) didn’t record an out and allowed 2 runs on 3 walks.

Brady Feigl (1.42 ERA) pitched 2 scoreless innings. He allowed 2 hits and struck out 1.
