Last night on the farm a couple of upper level pitchers had nice outings, and a couple of former first round picks had multi-hit games. Let’s find out who did what: Las Vegas 12, Oklahoma City 3Jacob deGrom allowed just 3 unearned runs in 6.1 innings, allowing 6 runs and 1 walk while striking out 6.
