Rafael Montero has been the name uttered by most when talking about the Binghamton Mets this season, but Logan Verrett has had just a good of a year. In fact, when you stack their numbers up against each other, they are neck and neck in a number of categories (strikeouts, WHIP, ERA).
Verrett twirled another gem tonight, pitching seven complete innings, scattering three hits, two runs (one earned), while striking out nine. Verrett had no walks on the night. At one point in the game, he had struck out five Portland batters in a row, on his way to a no decision.
Get this — over Verrett’s past two starts, he has pitched 13 innings, striking out nineteen batters and walking none. That’s completely ridiculous.
Saturday’s act by Verrett will be a tough one to follow — good thing Rafael Montero takes the hill for the B-Mets Sunday.
