SAN DIEGO–I got a call a few innings ago from BA’s Dave Perkin, who went up to Long Beach State to see the Dirtbags take on Wichita State. Perkin reports that LBSU junior righthander Vance Worley has looked better than Wichita’s Aaron Shafer. Worley has worked in the 91-93 mph range with his fastball, running it in and out, and he’s shown a decent changeup. Perkin said he seems to lack confidence in his curveball. Shafer topped out at 89 and employed a decent curveball in the 71-73 range, though it was a little inconsistent. He has a good, projectable frame, Perkin said, but he needs to use his legs more in his delivery.
After winning a 3-2 game in 12 innings yesterday, Long Beach appeared ticketed for another low-scoring, one-run affair today, but the Dirtbags erupted for five runs in the sixth against Shafer and reliever Logan Hoch, highlighted by Jason Corder’s pinch-hit two-run double. The Beach currently leads 7-5 in the seventh.
