Alumni Notebook: Roenicke gets second win in Triple-A

Here’s a look at how some athletes with local ties fared recently at the college and professional level:

Josh Roenicke (Nevada Union, ’01); Louisville Bats ” Roenicke grabbed his second win of the season with the Louisville Bats, pitching in relief for 12⁄3 innings and striking out two batters en route to beating the Charlotte Knights 7-5 Friday.

Roenicke has served up five strikeouts in two appearances over the week and in both games the Bats beat their Triple-A opponents.

He’s 2-0 on the year (in Triple-A) with a 2.05 ERA. He’s also totaled two saves and 27 strikeouts.

Jason Roenicke (Nevada Union, ’04); Auburn Doubledays ” Roenicke struck out four batters in two games over the week, pitching in three innings of relief work.

His Class A Doubledays team won both games by a margin of 13 or 16-3.

Roenicke is holding up a 0.00 ERA, with eight strikeouts and one save in seven appearances.

Pete Ruiz (Nevada Union, ’05); Gulf Coast League Red Sox ” Ruiz struck out one, walked another and gave up one earned run in three innings against the Pirates July 31 in the Rookie Gulf Coast League.

Ruiz has brought his ERA down to 5.68 after it ballooned to 12 due to a bad outing in which he gave up five runs in 11⁄3 innings of work three weeks ago.

He’s 1-1 on the season with 12 strikeouts in seven games — three of which were starts.

Robby Alcombrack (Bear River, ’06); Mahoning Valley Scrappers ” Alcombrack added a couple of doubles to his resume in games played this week. He’s batting .275 on the year with six RBIs, five doubles and a .356 on base percentage.
