The former Hazleton Area student continues to impress for the Gulf Coast League Phillies.

The 19-year-old lefty pitched six innings of four-hit baseball to register his second win of his professional career on Tuesday. With the six-inning shutout, he dropped his ERA to 0.83.

Six innings pitched was a career-high.
