Hart picks up first win

Around the time his former Yale football teammate Tom McCarthy was arriving in Atlanta to start his pro football career, Brook Hart was getting his first professional baseball win.

Hart's outing in the Casper Ghosts' 13-7 win over the Helena Brewers on Tuesday was far from his best. He came in with a runner on first and two outs in the sixth inning in a 7-6 game. Hart threw two consecutive wild pitches and then gave up a game-tying triple to Max Walla before getting Kyle Dhanani to ground out to end the inning. Although he did not come back out to pitch the seventh, he became the pitcher of record when Will Swanner homered in the top of the seventh to put Casper up 8-7.

Hart was a 23rd-round pick of the Colorado Rockies and assigned to Casper where he has been a solid member of the pitching staff, posting a 3.72 ERA in seven appearances. Hart started one game, finished two others and has a save.

I am at a loss to understand the tiresome snarking that breaks out at the mere mention of either Patrick Witt OR Brook Hart. Both are superb athletes and I, at least, am persuaded the football coaches selected the QB most likely to win for us..
