Is anyone else following the New Britain - Bowie game tonight on MILB.com? Currently, it shows that Alex Meyer has completed 5 innings, but has only thrown 33 pitches with not a single pitch called a ball, and has 8 strikeouts. This is almost beyond belief.

Gametime stats on AA games are like Gametime stats on ST games. No balls thrown means no walks, practically...

<sad face> I guess I'm not following a historic night. <sad face/>

Regardless of the pitch count and ball deception, it looks like Meyer is pitching very well tonight, so that is exciting.

6.1 innings 10 K's, 2 BB's, 1 ER, 48 pitches per box score. Doesn't seem possible. If only 3 pitches on K's & 4 on BB's that's 38 pitches. Leaves 10 pitches for 8 more outs plus 2 hits. Some kinda efficiency.

Also Buxton not in lineup tonight, injury? Rest?

Why was he taken out with only 48 pitches?

The pitch count had to be wrong obviously. I have seen this before in the minors boxscores. Even the opposing pitcher is only at 40 pitches and he threw 6 innings.

We won't have to wait too long for Meyer but I'm not sure if we will see him this year. I hope so though.

Love to see a few more starts like that. I think he'll be sent to AAA before the majors but I could be wrong.

Outstanding start by Meyer, he gets some consistency and he could really be one to watch. In the MiLB writeup about the game, they have a video from one of his previous starts, that slider is nasty
