PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It was a good outing for Lenape High School product Sean Black on Sunday in Trenton. The Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, native pitched six innings against the Phillies’ Double-A affiliate Reading, allowing just two runs on six hits for the Yankees’ Double-A team, the Thunder. He had to settle for a no-decision, but the Thunder eventually picked up a 3-2 win.
“Just trying to keep the ball down and pitch to contact,” Black told KYW Newsradio after the game. “It was hot out there, so it was trying to get yourself back in the dugout as quick as possible. There was a couple of innings there where I had a quick two first outs and then the third guy would get on. But for the most part I did a good job getting myself and the team back in there (the dugout), kind of not making them stand out there in the heat too long and wearing yourself down.”
