Known for having a firm fastball and good secondary pitches that sometimes produce double-digit strikeout games, Fuzesy’s wildness often results in five, six, seven, eight walks that have driven pitch counts north of 100 as early as the fifth inning this year.
Three times this season Fuzesy has struck out at least six batters. Three times he’s walked five or more.
In his last outing (June 29 vs. Calgary), the right-hander needed 60 pitches to get six outs.
On Wednesday, in a 10-0 conference victory against Medicine Hat, Fuzesy used only 68 pitches to toss five innings of shutout baseball in the Helena Senators’ 39th overall win.
“At the beginning of the year, I struggled with throwing strikes, and when I did throw strikes, it was in 3-0, 2-0 counts so they could just hit it,” Fuzesy said post-game.
Helena Senators right-hander Aaron Fuzesy tossed a five-inning shutout, striking out three and scattering four hits, in a 10-0 victory over the Medicine Hat Moose Monarchs on Wednesday. He also went 2-for-3 with a home run at the plate. Gary Marshall
