First to Third: Heckkkkkkk of a Performance

Ian Snell was 2-8 with a 5.36 ERA, 44 walks, and 52 strikeouts in 80.2 innings this year before being sent (or requesting himself?) to AAA Indianapolis by the Pirates. After a breakthrough 2006 season where he went 14-11, Snell has yet to reach double-digit wins again. After a dismal start to 2009, Snell was sent to the minors to fix some problems.

If Snell is still having problems after Sunday, I'd be shocked. Snell pitched against the Toldeo Mud Hens and struck out 13 consecutive hitters en route to a minor league season-high of 17 strikeouts over 7.0 innings. His final line for Sunday's game was 7.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER (1 R), 1 BB. The sad part, though, was that Snell only got a no-decision for his efforts contributing to his win-loss woes of recent years. If his performance of Sunday was any indicator of ability, Snell won't be in the minors for much longer.
