On Wednesday Ryan Vogelsong (Kutztown, Quakertown Blazers) allowed only one run in five innings as he started for the Pittsburgh Pirates in place of injured Francisco Liriano.

This was Vogey's first start in a Pirates uniform since September 29, 2004 and his first start against Detroit since Game 3 of the 2012 World Series. A Pirate bullpen collapse gave the Tigers a 7-4 victory.

Vogelsong is 1-0 with a win in relief for the Pirates on April 8 against the Cincinnati Reds.

On Monday Nick Tropeano (Stony Brook, Riverhead) tossed five shutout innings as the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Oakland Athletics 4-1.

RHP Phil Klein (Youngstown, Hamptons) has not allowed a run in two relief appearances for the Texas Rangers.

Shortstop Nick Ahmed (UConn, Westhampton Aviators) is hitting .296 for the Arizona Diamondbacks with three home runs.

Tim Mayza (Millersville, Quakertown Blazers, 2011) and Lou Trivino (Slippery Rock, Quakertown Blazers, 2011) both recently pitched in relief for their Major League teams in spring training.

On Sunday Mayza hurled a scoreless 8th inning as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 7-4. LHP Mayza allowed one hit, struck out two with no walks and touched 97 MPH with his fastball.

RHP Trivino pitched to one batter in the top of the 8th for the Oakland A's today and the batter popped out on a foul ball to the third baseman as the A's lost to the Cubs 9-5.

Trivino was a 11th round selection of Oakland in the 2013 MLB draft while Mayza went in the 12th round to Toronto.
