9 pitches. 3 strike outs. It doesn’t get any better than that. Braydon Tucker continued his recent Summer Ball hot streak exactly that way tonight.
Tucker added another five scoreless innings and seven more strikeouts to an already impressive Summer Ball season for The Terre Haute Rex.
Twice he has won Pitcher of the Night in the Prospect League. One of those games he took a no hitter into the 6th and finished with 12 K’s
Former Northview pitcher Braydon Tucker was electric on the mound for the Rex tonight in 2-1 win over Danville. He threw 6.0, struck out 12, gave up 1 run on 2 hits. pic.twitter.com/KqX8mwEl2V

Braydon was out of the mix as far as Hoosier Baseball from mid February till mid May last season due to injury. He returned during the Louisville game at The Bart and threw two scoreless innings. Coach spoke about his return and his importance to the bullpen at the 1:08 minute mark.
With so many starting pitching spots now open for 2020, it’ll be interesting to see how Tucker is used going forward. He is certainly making a strong case for himself this summer.
