CHEYENNE, WY -- Duck Snort pitcher Orlando Romero's consecutive inning scoreless streak was halted at 25 by the first batter in last evening's game when Alex Santana of the Montreal Valiants drilled a 2-1 curveball into the left field stands.
"Big O left that curve up in the zone a little bit, and you can't do that to a professional hitter like Santana," stated rookie Duck Snort catcher Jose Mieses. "Alex is a little guy, but he got all of that one."
During the scoreless streak, Romero posted a miniscule 0.56 WHIP, a 20:4 K:BB ratio, and tossed two complete game shutouts. The streaky Romero boasts a 2.25 ERA over his past six starts.
