  4 AUG 2017 - WARWICK SAUPOLD WINS No.3 v BALTIMORE!
Here is an update of what some Aussies and former AMLB imports have been doing in the US major leagues:

Warwick Saupold

 


Joey Rickard

Although it wasn't a spectacular outing today, Aussie reliever WARWICK SAUPOLD pounced for his third win of the season thanks to some strong run support from his Detroit Tigers' team mates who outscored the Baltimore Orioles 7-5 at Camden Yards. With a line of 1.2ip 2h 1r 1er 1bb 0k, Saupold improved his season record to 3-1, 3.38 ERA. He came to the mound in the midst of a rally with two runners on and only one out in the bottom of the fifth, but he came through in the best possible way with a ground ball double play from his first pitch that immediately killed off the threat. Back for the bottom of the sixth, Saupold got slugger Chris Davis to fly out to left ahead of a one out single on a full count pitched to Tim Beckham. There was no further advance for the O's when he got Joey Rickard to line out to left and Wellington Castillo to ground out on a fielder's choice to the third baseman. Working again into the seventh frame, Warwick didn't fare so well when Craig Gentry doubled to deep right to lead off the inning and Adam Jones milked a full count walk. That was enough for our man who was lifted and one of his runners scored later in the inning to saddle him with the run. JOEY RICKARD (Brisbane Bandits 2014) batted 0-4 (.246) as the starting right fielder and #7 hole hitter for Baltimore.

Australia's PETER MOYLAN threw just the one pitch today and it resulted in a raking double to deep right field for Nelson Cruz in the seventh inning of his Kansas City Royals' 6-4 home win over the travelling Seattle Mariners. Pete's obvious line for the day was 0.1ip 1h 0r 0er 0bb 0k (4.19 ERA) from the briefest of possible outings.

Centre fielder KEON BROXTON (Sydney Blue Sox 2014) batted a handy 1-2 (.222) with a walk and a RBI for the Milwaukee Brewers who scraped past the St.Louis Cardinals 2-1 this morning.

  3 AUG 2017 - PETE MOYLAN STRONG IN SHUTOUT LOSS TO ORIOLES!
Here is an update of what some Aussies and former AMLB imports have been doing in the US major leagues:

Peter Moylan
Aussie evergreen PETER MOYLAN was again effective enough for the Kansas City Royals in what was to be a 0-6 shutout defeat at the hands of the Baltimore Orioles. Pete was asked to pitch the seventh inning with his team already trailing 0-3 and he did his job of keeping it there with a solid 1.0ip 0h 0r 0er 1bb 0k (4.19 ERA). He began by getting former ABL import player JOEY RICKARD (Brisbane Bandits 2014) to ground out to third, then he got Caleb Joseph to ground out back to himself on the mound. After working a 0-2 count, Pete lost a six pitch battle with Craig Gentry who walked ahead of Adam Jones flying out to right field to end the inning. It wasn't his fault that his Royals' offence could not find any runs today. Rickard started at right field for the Orioles today, but he found it tough at the plate with 0-4 (.251).

Centrefielder KEON BROXTON (Sydney Blue Sox 2014) was back in action for the Milwaukee Brewers with a productive 2-4 (.220) plus a run scored in a losing 4-5 cause against the St. Louis Cardinals.

DIDI GREGORIUS (Canberra Cavalry 2011) batted 1-4 (.302) for the New York Yankees who were shut out at home 0-2 by the visiting Detroit Tigers.

  1 AUG 2017 - WARWICK SAUPOLD & PETE MOYLAN BOTH EFFICIENT!
Here is an update of what some Aussies and former AMLB imports have been doing in the US major leagues:

Warwick Saupold
Albeit in a losing cause, Aussie reliever WARWICK SAUPOLD posted a very tidy and efficient inning at the end of his Detroit Tigers' 3-7 loss to the New York Yankees this morning. With seven of nine pitches thrown for strikes, Warwick owned the pitching line of 1.0ip 0h 0r 0er 0bb 1k (3.29 ERA) while polishing off the bottom of the eighth. In quick succession he had Todd Frazier called out on strikes, Ronald Torreyes ground out back to the mound and Tyler Wade ground out to the first baseman.

Australian compatriot PETER MOYLAN posted exactly the same pitching line of 1.0ip 0h 0r 0er 0bb 1k (4.30 ERA) for the Kansas City Royals during their 1-2 defeat by the Baltimore Orioles. Asked to handle the vital bottom of the eighth in a tied 1-1 game, Pete struck 9out Manny Machado, got Jonathan Schoop to ground out back to the hill and then got Trey Mancini to ground out to third. Quite remarkably his sequence of outs was almost a replica of Saupold's, as some would note.
