Break out the champagne Mets fans, Oliver Perez pitched five scoreless innings this afternoon..
Oliver Perez started for the Class-A (short season) Brooklyn Cyclones today and beat the Hudson Valley Renegades
Perez allowed no runs on two hits in five innings pitched. He walked one batter and struck out six while throwing 72 pitches.
The Renegades lineup featured a half dozen players that recently begun their professional careers only seven days ago and most of them have never seen a major league changeup in their lives. So lets not get too excited until he can do as well against High-A or Double-A competition.
Still it’s better than saying he got pounded and gave up nine runs.
Thanks heavens for small miracles…
