April 10, 2024

Dong-kyoon Kim‘s consecutive-game hitting streak has now climbed to 20 games. The Seattle second baseman smacked 1 hit against the Houston Oilers in today’s game at Salty Park, but he expressed mixed emotions about the streak after watching the Salts drop the game, 8-6.

“I feel good about the streak, but don’t feel good when we lose,” he told reporters. “I’d love to get a hit as well as a win next time so I can celebrate properly.”

Dong-kyoon Kim flied out in the 3rd, hit a three-run double in the 4th, grounded out in the 6th and flied out in the 8th.

Seattle Befuddled by Zerkle in 2-0 Whitewash

April 2, 2024

An efficient outing for 3-time Sandy Koufax Award winner Chris Zerkle usually means a win for the Calgary Inferno and today was no exception. The 29-year-old right-hander held the Seattle Salts to a long line of goose eggs. He struck out 7 and gave up 4 hits in the 2-0 shutout.

“Chris really got it done out there today,” said Calgary manager Matt Taylor.

Zerkle pitched a complete game in the effort. Last season he was only able to amass 2 CG’s, down from a career high of 8 in 2021.

(GAME DATE — August 9, 2020) — The doctors have spoken and Hugo Prista of the Seattle Salts didn’t like what he heard. The 25-year-old starting pitcher is almost certainly gone for the rest of the year and depending on his progress could miss some of next season as well. Prista sustained his season-ending injury during the New York Dragons game yesterday at The Redoubt. He had to leave the game because he hurt himself while throwing a pitch. Today the Seattle medical staff reported Prista had a torn labrum and would be absent from the lineup for at least 5 months.

So far this year Prista has 2 wins and 2 losses and a 3.33 ERA. Continue reading “Seattle Loses Hugo Prista, Will Miss Season”
