New Arrival: Johnny Lieske, sp, Alabama-Birminghan Baseball

IMG_0002

Johnny Lieske is one of UAB “Big Three” pitchers who are leading the teams surprising season.

Last night he lost…but man, if you going to lose, that is the way to do it:  6 IP, 1 hit, 8 K with 4 walks and only 1 ER allowed.

On the season he is 2-0 with a 1.62 ERA through 33 innings.  Guys are hitting .176 off him, second lowest on the staff.  He has struck out 27, but also walked 21.  Still, you can live with the walks when most guys are not even getting contact on the ball.  Very nice season.
