Colorado Rockies pitcher Scott Oberg.
On Monday, the former Tewksbury High and UConn star was sent back to the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes after a 10-day stint with the Colorado Rockies. He made three appearances for the Rockies during their recent road trip. His first two appearances were strong but in the third, he found out how tough Major League hitters can be.
His debut on April 14 was nearly perfect, a one inning stint against the defending World Champion San Francisco Giants. He allowed just one hit, recorded his first Major League strikeout and was credited with the victory in the Rockies' 4-1 win.
His second appearance, on April 17, came against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He worked 1.1 innings, allowing one hit and striking out one in the Rockies' 7-3 loss.
Unfortunately, things did not go nearly as well in his third outing on April 19, also against the Dodgers. Oberg lasted just one-third of an inning, allowing four runs (three earned) on four hits, including home runs to Howie Kendrick, Scott Van Slyke and Joc Pederson.
