Robertson surrenders first run since call up

Robertson surrenders first run since call up

Much like he was tossed into the fire last year as a Major League starter for the Houston Astros, Jeriome Robertson is again battling the flames, only this time dousing fires as a relief pitcher for the Cleveland Indians.

Since being called up from Triple-A Buffalo on June 26, Robertson has made four appearances and until the Fourth of July, he was perfect. Robertson allowed one run in two-thirds of an inning in his first time pitching consecutive days for the Indians. Cleveland eventually lost the game 5-4 in 11 innings.

The day before he pitched a scoreless two-thirds of an inning in a 4-2 Indians loss. On July 1, he pitched a scoreless inning in a 7-6 nail biter over the Detroit Tigers.

Currently, the southpaw has an ERA of 5.59 in 9.92 innings pitched.

Pettyjohn, Grizzlies lose to 51s

Former Exeter Monarch Adam Pettyjohn (2-6) was saddled with a loss for the Fresno Grizzlies on Friday after allowing just two earned runs in five innings in a 9-5 loss to the Las Vegas 51s,

Jose Flores drove in three runs, while Chin Feng Chen added three RBI to lead the Las Vegas 51s over the Fresno Grizzlies, 9-5. The 51s (37-45) have won two straight games, while the Grizzlies (33-49) have dropped two contests.

After falling behind 2-0, Chen came up in the fourth inning and blasted a two-run shot off Pettyjohn to tie the game at two. Flores added a three-run double in the fifth to give Las Vegas a 5-2 advantage. The 51s would add one run in the sixth and three more in the eighth to close the scoring on their half. Flores went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a double in the win.
