Lineup, Game Notes, and Transaction – August 5, 2014
RHP Taylor Williams transferred to Brevard County.
Williams has done a little bit of everything for the Timber Rattlers this season, and nearly all of it with great aplomb. He’s 8-1 with a 2.36 ERA that ranks second in the league, owns the circuit’s best WHIP at 0.94, has tossed a complete game, and has recorded four saves. Friday marked the 23-year-old Kent State product’s finest outing of the year as Williams notched a career-high 11 strikeouts over seven scoreless, one-hit innings. Overall, Williams has held Midwest hitters to a .201 average — .190 since the All-Star break.
If you were ever going to use aplomb in a baseball article, this was the one in which to use it.
