    Wow, this kid is all class! Most wouldn't even take 5 minutes away from counting their money to do something like this, especially for people he's never met or even played in front of. Best of luck Joe! Hopefully, baseball works out, but if it does not, Ohio State always has room for players like you!

    Good luck with baseball, Joe, if not, we'd still be glad to see you in Scarlet & Gray in the future.

    Joe Bauserman (update) story:

    [font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Good Morning, today is Thursday - July 28, 2005[/font] ​
    Cutters win ninth straight
    Guy Cipriano Sun-Gazette Staff

    [font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] Here’s another shake-your-head number describing how perfect things are going for the Williamsport Crosscutters:
    They needed less than 100 pitches to defeat the New York-Penn League’s best hitting team.
    Joe Bauserman, Derrik Moeves and Matt Swanson combined for a three-hitter to defeat Tri-City 2-0 Thursday at Bowman Field.
    In 96 cleverly thrown pitches, the trio extended the Cutters’ winning streak to nine games, the second longest in team history and longest since they won 10 straight from July 4-14, 2003. The team also recorded a 10-game winning streak in 2001.
    “It’s just about going out there day after day and being able to win one individual game each time,” Swanson said. “You can’t get caught up in winning nine games. It’s just about going out each day and getting a victory, and we have been able to do that.”
    The ninth win of this current streak resembled the seventh as the Cutters (18-12) made a team hitting .300 look ordinary, while scoring all their runs on one hit. Cameron Blair’s two-run homer in the sixth gave Bauserman enough support to earn his second win in six days.
    The Cutters also defeated Tri-City by recording one big hit Tuesday — John Santiago’s three-run homer with two outs in the ninth.
    “The reason we won today was how Bauserman pitched. Period,” said Blair, who hit Douglas Arguello’s 3-2 fastball over the left-field fence. “You can’t take any credit away from him because he was the whole game. No matter what you say we really didn’t do anything. We didn’t play great defense, we didn’t have a good offense whatsoever. We had two good hits in one inning, and that was basically the end of the game, and that was only because of Bauserman’s pitching.”
    How good was the 19-year-old Bauserman?
    He allowed only six baserunners in seven innings and pitched himself out of a dicey situation in the sixth. With one out, Eric King doubled to right field and advanced to second base on Bauserman’s throwing error during a pickoff attempt.
    After throwing the ball into center field, he threw his third ball to Neil Sellers, who entered the game leading the New York-Penn League with a .410 batting average. Sellers fouled off three pitches, forcing Bauserman to handle three straight 3-2 situations.
    On his third 3-2 pitch, Bauserman threw a low fastball and Sellers grounded out to shortstop Brent Lillibridge. The inning ended with Jordan Parraz grounding out to third baseman John Santiago.
    “You just go out there and pitch your game and hope the offense can come through like it did tonight,” said Bauserman, who has allowed one earned run in his last two starts.
    Bauserman completed a strong series for Cutter starters. Bauserman, Luis Munoz and Todd Redmond allowed two earned runs in 20 innings.
    The eight pitchers the Cutters used during the series allowed 22 hits, but only three were for extra bases. The staff also held Tri-City to six runs in three games.
    The pitching helped the Cutters recover from some defensive blunders. They committed seven errors during the series, including two during the Thursday’s ninth inning.
    The inning started with Sellers hitting a weak grounder to first baseman Steve Pearce. Swanson, though, dropped Pearce’s flip, and Lillibridge then made a throwing error on a double-play opportunity.
    Still, Swanson threw just four pitches during the inning to record his third professional save.
    “I have never made it out of an inning in four pitches,” he said. “I haven’t been doing anything different than what I did in college. I’m not out there trying to blow it by a guy and it’s easy to pitch with confidence.”
    It took more pitches, but Moeves had a similar eighth. Moeves forced two fly outs and allowed a single to Wladimir Sutil before striking out King. This marked the second straight game Moeves has contributed to a Bauserman victory.
    “It has been easy following him,” said Moeves, who pitched three scoreless innings Saturday against Vermont. “He has been hitting the inside and outside corners and he has hitters guessing by the time I get there. He’s been doing a great job.”
    NOTES: The Pittsburgh Pirates reassigned pitcher Mark Michael to Hickory. Michael went 1-0 with seven strikeouts while making two starts in a rehabilitation assignment... Infielder Brett Grandstrand defeated Tri-City’s James Goethals in a pregame closest-to-the-pylon golf contest. Grandstrand’s best shot landed 25 feet from the pylon, eight feet closer than Goethals’ best attempt.

    Bauserman is 3-1 in 7 starts, 2.38 era, 34 innings pitched, 23 hits, 21 k's, 14 bb's.

    Pretty good numbers, if he could improve the k:bb ratio a bit, he'll be moved up in no time.

    With those numbers, good luck in the majors Joe. He'll get there. If he can cut down on the walks, he appears to have all-star potential. But even with the walk count being high, his WHIP is still only 1.08. That is impressive, even at the minor league level.

    that kid is a class act, and i will always regard him as a Buckeye, no matter what happens...

    I always admired the fact that he was upfront with JT and everyone else in regards to his potential baseball career. Good luck to Joe, even though he doesn't appear to need it!

    Joe needs to start striking people out or he'll get bombed as he moves up the ladder. Good luck to him though.

    Agreed. At 72.0 IP, that's the equivalent of eight complete games, with only 33 strikeouts, which is barely over four a game...and that's against single-A level hitting.

    This appears to be his first year in high A ball and at 20 years old thats age appropriate. His first 2 years in the minors weren't terrible and so far this year he's doing a good job of keeping the ball in the park but the H/9, K/9, and K/BB are less than great.

    The trend so far for him is that each move up in level his K rates drop and he gets more hittable. No offense to the kid but these numbers are not those of a true prospect. At this rate I'd say he's got a decision to make after the 2007 baseball season.
