Former Bell Fans Eight in Start for Toronto

07/29/2009 12:30 PM

Former Bells pitcher Marc Rzepczynski was back in Washington State on Tuesday, July 28, for a pitching appearance near his old stomping grounds–this time he just happened to be throwing on a slightly larger scale.

Rzepczynski (pronounced zep-CHIN-sky), who played for the Bells in 2004, was called up to the Majors earlier this month and made is MLB debut on July 7 at Tampa Bay. Tuesday he was in Seattle to battle the Mariners at Safeco Field. The Toronto Blue Jays southpaw struck out a career high eight batters in 5 1/3 while allowing three runs–all earned–and five hits. He did not factor into the decision.

The start was Rzepczynski’s fifth in the big leagues where he currently holds a 1-2 record with a 3.25 ERA. In 27 2/3 innings of Major League action, Rzepczynski has fanned 30 and held opposing batters to a .192 average.
