Collin McHugh Dazzles, Strikes Out 11 In Complete Game Gem
Last night, while making his final start of the season for the Binghamton Mets, Collin McHugh delivered his finest performance of what has been a breakthrough season for the young right-hander.
McHugh struck out 11 batters and pitched a nine inning complete game masterpiece during the B-Mets’ 2-1 victory over the Erie SeaWolves. He allowed one run on five hits and walked two, and retied the final eight batters he faced. The complete game was the first by a B-Mets started this season.
The 24-year old prospect has allowed two runs or fewer in 10 consecutive starts, and finishes his Double-A debut with a sparkling 2.89 ERA – fourth-best in the league. Since the All-Star break, McHugh was 6-0 with a 1.53 ERA and one save.
McHugh must have been on a huge high Thursday night, after learning earlier in the day that he was selected by the Mets to pitch in the Arizona Fall League beginning in October. It’s a big honor for McHugh who will be mixing it up with many of the game’s elite prospects.
Keep an eye on this one Mets fans, he is definitely one to watch.
