Brandan Bidois made his third pitching appearance and threw a shutout inning, retiring all three batters he faced by getting two fly balls and a ground out to second base. The last batter he faced was long-time Major League player Delmon Young, who has played winter ball only for the last four years. In six innings this winter, Bidois has allowed one run on two hits and two walks, with four strikeouts.
Here’s a Bidois highlight reel from his start earlier in the week:
