SEATTLE (AP) — Cleveland’s Zach Plesac has not allowed a hit through six innings against the Seattle Mariners.
Plesac hasn’t been overpowering, but he has induced weak contact when Seattle has put the ball in play Thursday night.
The right-hander has two strikeouts and three walks on 68 pitches. Only four of the 18 outs have been made by outfielders, including Josh Naylor’s grab in foul territory while crashing into the stands on the first pitch of the game to Seattle’s Jarred Kelenic.
Plesac, the nephew of longtime big league pitcher Dan Plesac, was 2-3 with a 3.83 ERA entering Thursday.
