Jesus Modica had the Toronto Ducks dancing to his tune today with a sparkling 4-0 shutout performance for the Kingston Cannons. He gave up 3 hits, issued 2 walks and had 6 strikeouts.
Toronto hitters were bewildered throughout the game by his delivery.
“When you face a guy who hides the ball like he does, it takes a couple of at-bats to try to find his release point,” opposing manager Ray Morrell said. “We just never figured him out.”
In 11 starts this season Modica has crafted a 5-4 record with a 3.86 ERA. In 10 years in the Bull League, he has tallied a 43-32 record, and amassed 514 K’s, and just 160 BB’s in 765 innings. The $4.8 million starter will become a free agent at the end of this season.
