Stats Update: Patrick Overholt

Per request, here is some information about Patrick Overholt's last couple outings for the Threshers.

Perhaps Patrick read the blog and wasn't happy seeing a story about a hot pitcher, and it being about an opponent. He pitched an eight-inning gem on Saturday night in what may have been the quickest nine-inning game that we've ever had at Bright House Networks Field. It was so quick, that I didn't even get the chance to eat dinner at the ballpark. Turned out well though, since my wife and I did have time to go out to dinner for a change. Had a great honey BBQ sirloin at Chili's on US19.

Sorry for the detour. Patrick gave up zero runs and six hits on Saturday. He struck out three and walked only one on his way to evening up his record at 2-2. Patrick's ERA is now a stellar 1.93 through four games.

Patrick struck out seven in the game at Tampa on Monday (4/16). He ended up picking up the loss despite only giving up one run in five and two-thirds innings.

Random Stat: Patrick's best inning so far this year is the fourth. So far, he's struck out three and only given up one hit.

Updated 2:45pm: Patrick has just been named Phillies Minor League Pitcher of the Week (April 16-22). Check the Official Site later for the full story.

Updated 3:00pm: Phuture Phillies has a recent blog entry about Overholt that can be found here.
