Subject: 15Ks for Figueroa
The Baltimore Robins were victorious over the Orlando Sharks today 11-1 at Ballpark of Baltimore after getting an outstanding performance from starting pitcher Jorge Figueroa. The 31-year-old Figueroa brought his top game to the mound, striking out 15 batters while allowing 6 hits and 1 walk.
"He made a lot of good pitches out there," the Orlando manager said. "He made some of our guys look bad. We didn't help matters by swinging at everything, but we really have to give him credit -- he didn't make many mistakes."
Figueroa continues to roll on toward a Hall of Fame plaque. This year he has a 12-0 record with a 1.29 ERA in 16 starts. He leads the Patriot League with 138 strikeouts.
