Pitcher of the Day

This, folks, was an amazing game. Our POD is Covington’s Cody Strayer, from Shawnee State, who made his first

Cody Strayer
Cody Strayer

summer start last night in a must-win for the Lumberjacks. All he did was pitch 11 innings (he faced 46 batters and threw 144 pitches!) and allow 9 hits, 3 runs, but only 1 earned, 1 walk, and strike out 6. He did not get a decision, but it certainly wasn’t for lack of trying. He earned a game score of 76. Cody has actually served as the Lumberjack closer this summer.. up to last night, anyway. For the season, Cody is 0-3, 1.17, with 27 hits, 10 walks, and 26 strikeouts in 30 2/3 innings pitched.
