Milwaukee Brewers: Biloxi Shuckers Week 19 – Lopez Turns in Best Start
Top 3 Pitchers
27.0 IP / 4.67 ERA / 6.31 FIP (AA numbers only/FIP not updated from last night’s start)
Lopez’s last two starts (out of 5 total) were his best yet with the Shuckers. In 5 IP last he gave up 2 ER, 2 BBs, and 3 Ks with a total of 95 pitches. Yesterday, he seemed to put it all together pitching more than 5 innings for once as he had 7 IP, 1 ER, 1 BB, and 6 Ks. The Milwaukee Brewers organizations hopes Lopez can have more starts like that to end the season on a good note.
12.1 IP / 0.00 ERA / 3.23 FIP (Shuckers stats only)
Ortiz got his pitch count up a bit with 78 pitches as he continues to battle back from a groin strain. In doing that, he had his most innings pitched with the Shuckers going 5.2 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 2 BBs, and 2 Ks. All signs point to a promising rest of the season for the #5 Milwaukee Brewers prospect.
45 IP / 2.20 ERA / 2.13 FIP
Kohlscheen rebounded from last week’s first blown save as he had two appearances including a save on Wednesday night for Ortiz’s start. That brings his total up to 19 for the season. The 27-year old isn’t your typical closer with a big fastball as his gets up to the low 90s, but he has a number of breaking balls like his slider and sinker that probably play a big role.
