Week 11 Notes
The Braves fancy new toy… Dallas Keuchel’s start on Saturday as a Mississippi Brave may not have been spectacular, but his outing on Monday as a Rome Brave sure was.
And if there’s a team that needs a rent-a-pitcher, especially a former Cy Young pitcher, it’s Rome. It’s been a rough year for the R-Braves.
Keuchel was amazing in his Braves organization debut, tossing a one-hitter over seven innings and only walking one.
He finished with nine strikeouts and a ridiculous pitch total of 77, only facing two batters over the minimum.
Rome’s solid catching tandem… Rome has mainly used Logan Brown at the catcher spot this season, as Hagen Owenby was in extended Spring Training and with the Fire Frogs before joining the R-Braves roster.
Owenby has just been with Rome for 16 games, but all he’s done since he got there is hit. The former 12th round pick in the 2017 Draft had a great Week 11, going 6-for-19 (.315 BA).
Owenby has a hit in eight-straight games and nine of 10.
Brown has played a lot more (51 games) and has been consistent, as well. His Week 11 wasn’t as impressive — 5-for-21 (.238 BA) with a double and two RBI — but the 22-two-year-old lefty-hitter from Indiana has been a nice compliment to the right-handed Owenby.
Rome’s Catching Duo
