Jepsen Update: 3rd Scoreless Inning
Kevin Jepsen pitched the 8th inning tonight against the Mariners, gave up his first ML hit, but got his second strikeout. He threw 9 strikes out of 14 pitches for his third straight scoreless inning in three appearances. The "kid" is looking like he's got some decent stuff, and considering the shape of the Angels bullpen, might even make the playoff roster. We'll have to wait and see, but something's telling me to keep an eye on him; I'm getting an eerie reminder of 2002 at the moment.
