Pitcher of the Day

One day after taking out his vengeance on a utility pole in Woodstock, Max Charlton took the mound for his second start of the summer, and it was a doozy. The freshman from Arkansas State spun five shutout innings while allowing two hits, two walks, and striking out eight. He didn’t get a decision, but his game score was 69, just one point better than William Carter. Charlton is now 1-0, 0.81, with 11 K’s in 11 innings pitched this summer.
