Onondaga, NY June 25, 2018: The Onondaga Flames pitching staff has been rock solid so far this season, leading the NYCBL in fewest earned runs with 61 over 19 games. Flames pitchers have given up 145 base hits, second best in the league. The staff has a team league best ERA of 3.14.
Contributing to the staff’s success has been the reliable performance of the bullpen with none more steady than Jimmy Flahive, a rising Junior at American International College. Flahive’s 1.00 ERA is the best in the NYCBL (pitchers with 8 or more innings pitched). Appearing in 18 innings over nine games, Jimmy has allowed only 2 earned runs on 11 hits – only one for extra bases. He has struck out twenty while walking only nine for a WHIP of 1.11.
A sidearm southpaw, Flahive has an excellent pickoff move and has already caught a couple of base runners napping. A middle inning reliever, he seldom figures in wins,losses or saves, however, he earned his first win two days ago over the Syracuse Salt Cats.
Jimmy hails from Longmeadow, Massachusettsl.
