Jordan Hicks, Ryan Helsley throw flames in Saturday’s win
Jordan Hicks pitched 1.2 innings, giving up two hits. In his first outing since returning from the injured list, Hicks’ velocity topped out at 103.4 mph. This is a certain indication that his arm has improved.
Helsley earned his fourth win of the season after throwing two innings. He walked one and struck out five batters while inducing 10 swings and misses.
This was his first outing after a blown save on Wednesday. It was great to see him rebound from that disaster with such confidence, serving as a character-building moment on the mound for the young arm.
