Ljay Newsome Continues to Impress for Modesto
Ljay Newsome, the opening day starter for the Modesto Nuts, had his best outing of the year last night against the Lake Elsinore Storm. The right-hander held Lake Elsinore to 4 hits, while striking out 5 and walking none, over 7 shutout innings. This was Newsome's second dominant outing in a row, besting his 6 scoreless inning performance against the San Jose Giants last Tuesday. Newsome, despite a slow start to the season, has decreased his ERA in every start he has made this season.
