Wild night for Brackman

Andrew Brackman had one of the best days in his career on May 21, going eight innings and allowing one run against Lexington. He walked one and struck out six.

His next start came last night against Bowling Green.


Brackman went three innings and allowed one hit. But he gave up three runs thanks to 10 walks and five wild pitches. Then he and Annie Savoy hung out with Crash Davis.

Check out the play by play for the second inning:

• Michael Sheridan walks.

• Michael McCormick lines out to left fielder Daniel Brewer.

• Isaias Velasquez singles. Michael Sheridan to 2nd.

• With Jason Tweedy batting, wild pitch, Sheridan to 3rd. Velasquez to 2nd.

• Tweedy walks. Wild pitch. Sheridan scores. Velasquez to 3rd.

• With Jeremy Beckham batting, wild pitch. Velasquez scores. Tweedy to 2nd.

• Beckham walks.

• With Anthony Scelfo batting, wild pitch. Tweedy to 3rd.

• Scelfo grounds into double play.

Charleston won the game 9-4 for what it’s worth. Brackman is 1-4 with a 3.83 ERA in 10 starts. Over 54 innings, he has allowed 48 hits, walked 28 and struck out 47.

The day will come when he can laugh about last night. Brackman is a talented young man with a world of potential. But 10 walks and five wild pitches are not something you can easily forget.
