Petricka Leaves Game in First Inning
Winston-Salem starter Jake Petricka exited Friday night’s game against the Carolina Mudcats after Tyler Holt lined a ball off Petricka’s right elbow.
Holt’s line drive came on Petricka’s fourth pitch of the outing. After trying to walk off the injury for a few moments, Petricka headed briefly for the dugout before walking to the clubhouse.
Fellow right-hander Justin Collop relieved Petricka, who had been pitching well lately. The former second-round pick had worked through six innings in each of last three starts, with the most recent pair of outings resulting in quality starts. Petricka, who is the fifth-best prospect in the White Sox minor league system, entered Friday with a 3-3 record and a 4.50 ERA.
Both Dan Black and Juan Silverio have homered tonight for the Dash, who lead 2-0 in the third inning. Listen live to the action here.
