The JetHawks got blanked by Rancho Cucamonga in a 5-0 loss. So Keuchel gets the loss, despite throwing 6IP, 4H/1ER, 5K:0BB. David Duncan threw out of the bullpen for the first time this season, and my vote is for ending this experiment, as he allowed 4H/3ER in 1IP. Shane Wolf threw a perfect 8th, and David Berner gave up 2H/1ER in the 9th. Barry Butera was 2x3, and Lee Cruz, John Curtis, and Brandon Wikoff got your other three hits.
