Big day for Indians P Kyle Crockett (Poquoson) getting first major league win.
The Indians are bringing back LH Kyle Crockett (Poquoson) for the second time, having recalled him from AAA Columbus.
The Indians, just before a road trip to Baltimore, have optioned LH Kyle Crockett (Poquoson) to AAA, but this does mean he could pitch in front of family if AAA Columbus travels to Norfolk.
When the Indians called up LH reliever Kyle Crockett (Poquoson) from Double-A last week, he made his debut against Oakland and allowed 2 hits, including a homerun, and a walk in just 1 1/3 innings of work in a blowout loss. Since then, he has settled down big time.
He has thrown 3 innings in 2 games since, allowed 2 walks, no hits, and most importantly, no runs. His ERA, a bloated 6.75 after that debut we can probably chalk up to nerves, has plummeted down to 2.08. Last night, he pitched the 9th and 10th innings and kept Detroit off the board, giving Cleveland the chance to win the game in 13.
Congratulations to reliever Kyle Crockett (Poquoson) whom the Indians called up from AA just the other day. Last night he made his ML debut against Oakland, pitching 1 1/3 innings, allowing a solo HR and one walk.
