Watt stays hot

Mike Watt did not factor in the decision for Friday’s 5-3 loss to Bowling Green. But the left-handed pitcher continued his string of strong starts.

Watt allowed one run on one hit in five innings. He retired 12 batters in a row during one stretch.

Watt said he didn’t feel that good at the start of the game. He battled through and has allowed two or fewer runs in six of his last seven starts.

"His tempo tonight was exactly what I saw from his last outing," TinCaps manager Jose Flores said. "He’s working ahead, he’s trusting his stuff and he’s having a lot more confidence throwing that fastball when he wants to to both sides of the plate."
