In Australia today, Zac Fuesser threw six innings in his team’s 4-2 loss. Fuesser allowed all four runs, three were earned, while giving up seven hits, two walks and he struck out seven batters. He threw 102 pitches on the night, 67 were for strikes. He is scheduled to appear in Sunday’s ABL All-Star game. Fuesser has a 2-2, 4.02 record, with a 1.37 WHIP, 1.76 GO/AO ratio and 29 strikeouts in 31.1 innings. Two Pirates players were in the starting lineup, Stefan Welch and Justin Howard. Both had quiet nights, going a combined 0-for-7, with Welch reaching base once via walk. For Howard, who struck out three times, it was a stark contrast to his performance last week when he was named ABL Player of the Week. In Puerto Rico last night, Benji Gonzalez came in during the ninth inning as a pinch-runner. He was thrown out attempting to steal second base. Gonzalez finished the game defensively at shortstop. In Venezuela, Nate Baker came in during the ninth inning and faced three batters, striking out one, while also allowing two singles before being removed. He was taken out with his team up 7-1 and neither runner he left on base scored. One day after pitching in the VWL/DWL All-Star game, Ryan Reid was called upon during the 12th inning last night, where he allowed two runs to take the loss. Reid retired two batters on strikeouts, but not before allowing  three singles and hitting a batter. Just one of the two runs he allowed was earned.
