By continually coming through in the clutch, former Milwaukee Brewers utility man Bill Hall quickly became a fan favorite. He delivered so much that the phrase “Bill Hall wins games” was coined as his walk-off hits became  a regularity.

This season after his impressive April, Biloxi Shuckers pitcher Brooks Hall may begin to hear the same type of phrase uttered after his name. By dominating Southern League batters Hall looks to be on track to not only climb the prospect ladder in Milwaukee, but also work his way into the big leagues, too.

This spring Hall was taken off of the Brewers’ 40-man roster after the signing Francisco Rodriguez and with each time out he is proving that the Brewers are lucky to have been able to hang on to him. As the Shuckers’ opening day starter, Hall has been nothing short of excellent all season long.

After making only five starts last season, Hall has been incredible in each of his five starts this year. Throughout 28 innings, Hall has allowed just three runs and has an impressive WHIP of just 0.79 (which leads the Southern League). Not only has he been able to limit hits against him, but he also has just five walks over these starts and has yet to walk more than two batters in any outing this season. With an ERA of 0.95 he is currently second Southern League in ERA.

He is not even ranked as one of the team’s top-30 prospects by MLB.com, but with his awesome start he will be by mid-season. He finished second in our Brewers’ prospect pitcher of the month poll and he was named the Brewers’ organizational pitcher for the month of April.  With a perfect 3-0 record heading into tonight’s start, it is becoming more and more apparent that “Brooks Hall wins games,” too.
