MLB Note - Philadelphia Phillies Pivetta, Nick

Aug 17, 2017 - 2:08 AM RHP Nick Pivetta will be optioned out to make room for the position player that manager Pete Mackanin said would be called up. Pivetta struck out a career-high 11 Wednesday in the 3-0 loss to the Padres. But he also allowed three runs, five hits, three walks and five stolen bases in five-plus innings. Pivetta's 11 strikeouts were the most by a rookie Phillies pitcher since Cole Hamels had 11 strikeouts on Sept. 16, 2006, at Houston. Pivetta is the first Phillies pitcher to have each of his first eight outs be strikeouts since Roy Halladay on April 3, 2013.

No one has shouted yet.
