“As the year went on, they gave me a little more leeway with the pitch count,” said Tepesch, who hasn’t lost since May 28. “I got stronger and stronger.”
Tepesch has since continued scorching his way through the league. Last night he got a no-decision after giving up four runs and striking out nine in six innings of a 5-4 victory. Tepesch is 2-0 with a 3.96 ERA in four starts in July. For the season, he is 5-3 with a 3.47 ERA.
A lot of Tepesch’s success in Hickory . . .
