Bale rocked in ML debut, gets win anyway

One of the best pitching prospects to come along in some time made his major league debut recently and was welcomed with a bang. Well, several bangs actually.

Don Bale threw 7.1 innings for the Greased-Up Deaf Guys in his first big league start against the Scottsdale Dust devils and allowed 8 earned runs on 10 hits. Bale did strikeout 8 hitters while walking none, and even stayed around long enough to pickup the win thanks to Toronto’s 16 runs scored including 7 RBIs from Jim Drese. The rough debut isn’t exactly what Toronto was hoping for when they called up Bale from AA and the team hopes he can turn it around before the playoffs begin.
