Prospect League Release – The Prospect League Prospect(us) Pitcher of the Day is Terre Haute, starter Braydon Tucker, (W, 3-1, 3.58 ERA), from Brazil, IN, a graduate from Northview High School and a freshman at Indiana University, won his third straight game, giving the REX 5.1 strong innings on the mound, giving up just two runs to a good Danville offense, on three hits and two walks, while striking out nine of the 21 batters he faced in the REX win over the Dans.

• Braden Scott started his first game for the Morehead City Marlins going four innings giving up 3 runs on 6 hits with 4 K’s. Scott has been a reliever all summer for the Marlins with 32 K’s in 26 innings and 2 saves. With next season’s rotation uncertain, looks like Scott could be in the mix.
