As the calendar flipped over into June, Meyer had his best start of the season. Crediting a mechanical change
, he dominated everyone in the Bowie Baysox lineup (well, everyone except Brandon Waring). Meyer pitched 6 1/3 innings, and punched out 10 Baysox batters, with only 2 walks and 2 hits allowed.
Meyer faced 22 batters and struck out 10 - 45% of the plate appearances ended in a K
Only two walks and two hits allowed. (Both hits and a walk were to Brandon Waring)
He allowed a home run, his 3rd of the season.

To expand on Jokin's comment about batters squaring up the ball against Meyer, I dug through the game logs and counted only 12 extra base hits against him so far this season, with the following breakdown:
2B - 8
3B - 1
HR - 3
Using this, I was able to determine that batters have the following triple-slash against Meyer:
This gives them an OPS of about .615.
