Stephen Fife got his first MLB action and had a pretty nasty line...
(taken from ESPN)
Stephen Fife pitched six sharp innings in his major league debut for the Dodgers. The bespectacled 25-year-old right-hander yielded a run and four hits, walked three and struck out one while throwing 90 pitches. He was promoted from Triple-A Albuquerque when Chad Billingsley went on the disabled list, retroactive to July 8, because of inflammation in his right elbow.
The Dodgers acquired Fife from Boston in a three-team trade that sent switch-hitting outfielder Trayvon Robinson to Seattle at the non-waiver trade deadline last year. He was 7-5 with a 4.53 ERA in 18 starts with Albuquerque."Today I watched some of his tape from some of his Albuquerque outings, and what I saw is exactly what we got -- a guy who competes and gives us a chance," A.J. Ellis said. "He did everything we asked of him, and more. He hung with them, and any nerves he might have had he didn't show it. It's a shame we couldn't get him that first career win tonight."
How bout it... Ute goin toe to toe with Doc Halladay last night and hurling 6 innings of 4 hit baseball... Hats off to Fife... Hopefully Utah can develop a baseball team in the PAC-12... should take a while.
