Former Abilene Christian University pitcher Trey Watten may one day work his way to the major leagues, but he will always remember his first professional baseball appearance.
He is pitching for the Helena (Mont.) Brewers in an advanced rookie league. In his debut, he hurled six innings of shutout ball, allowing three hits, no walks and four strikeouts in the 10-0 victory.
It was the Brewers' first win of the season. They have won only three since Watten's gem. He was solid again Thursday night in a 5-4 win over Billings, giving up two runs and five hits in five innings, walking two and striking out two. His earned-run average is 1.64.
