Astros | Mark Appel makes pro debut
Houston Astros SP Mark Appel made his professional debut Friday, July 5, for Class A Tri-City, allowing two runs and three hits with one strikeout in two innings. His first pro pitch was hit over the center fielder's head for a triple, but he settled down somewhat after the uneven start. He needed just seven pitches for a perfect inning in the second before departing. He threw 19 of his 26 pitches for strikes. A scout at the stadium had Appel's velocity a little higher than the stadium gun, registering at 94-95 mph.
