Magee Magnificent Despite Auburn Loss
Magee retired the first five batters he faced on Saturday before allowing a two out single to James Van Ostrand in the second inning. He went on to allow an infield single in the third inning, before he got into his biggest jam of the evening in the fourth.
After getting Tim Torres to ground out to second to begin the inning, he allowed a single up the middle to Eric Taylor, and then an infield single to Jordan Parraz. After recording the second out of the inning, Magee allowed another infield single, this time to Ostrand which loaded the bases, however, Magee got Justin Tellman to ground into a force out to end the inning.
The 23-year-old cruised from the point, and that included three consecutive strikeouts between the fifth and sixth inning, and two more in the seventh.
Zach Dials came in to replace Magee in the eighth and pitched well despite allowing an unearned run which led to the lone run of the game. Nicholas Moresi led the inning off by reaching on an errant throw by Jonathan Diaz. Dials got the next two batters to ground out to second, but with two outs the Moresi was on third, and was able to score easily on a Jordan Parraz single to right.
Dials tosses two innings, allowing an unearned run, on two hits, and fanning a batter.
Magee has pitched exceptionally well over his last five outings, going 2-0 with a 1.45 ERA in 31 1/3 innings. Opponents are hitting just .164 off him with runners in scoring position.
