  • Last time out on the mound, Rollie Lacy tossed a no-hitter last week. This time around, Lacy had a quality start spanning six innings allowing three hits and one earned run. He walked none and struck out eight on Tuesday. Lacy’s no-hit span lasted 10 1/3 innings but was broken up with a single in the fourth. Still, Lacy had a great start tying a season-high in strikeouts.
  • Matt Swarmer was rolling for the Pelicans with three innings under his belt, but Swarmer’s start was cut short due to a rain delay. Swarmer went three innings allowing just two hits and no walks with three strikeouts before the rain came in. Swarmer increases his three-earned runs or less streak to 5 straight games.
  • Short-A Eugene’s season starts on Friday now just a few days away. The Emeralds roster has yet to be announced with draft picks just now signing but should have a stacked roster.
