Taijuan Walker Has His Best (But Still Not Great) Start In Awhile

Mariners pitching prospect Taijuan Walker entered last nights game for Jackson after having given up three or more runs in each of his last seven starts. He had also failed to get past the fourth inning in three of them. However, he seems to be getting back on the right track after last night's 7-3 win over Huntsville.

Walker went 6 innings, allowing 5 hits, 1 ER, 2 BB, and 3 K. We've seen better from Walker, but we've also seen a lot worse recently. Carter Capps was exceptional again, going 2 innings and striking out 5 batters to pick up his 18th save of the season.

Chih-Hsien Chiang went 1-for-4 and drove in two runs, and Stefen Romero went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored, but also struck out three times.

I wonder if Walker just missed his buddy Danny Hultzen since his promotion to Tacoma. Don't worry Taijuan, you'll see him again soon enough and probably for a very long time after that.
