LeCure pleased with first outing
Overshadowed somewhat in Wednesday’s 4-3 loss to the Royals was the two perfect innings of relief from freshly called up pitcher Sam LeCure. In his 2015 big league debut, LeCure worked two perfect innings in the seventh and eighth with two strikeouts.
It was definitely a meaningful moment for LeCure to succeed the first time out after spending the whole season at Triple-A Louisville trying to get back.
“It wasn’t so much emotion, you always kind of tell yourself, ‘hey, I’m a Major Leaguer. I know my stuff plays there. The game’s the same,'” LeCure said on Thursday. “So you believe it but you still have to prove it to yourself, you know what I mean? It was just real nice to go out there and have that type of outing and just reinforce the fact that it is the same game. My stuff does play here. I can get people out here like I had in the past.
“I didn’t do a whole lot wrong last night but there’s always going to be things you’re working to get better at. I’ll try to get better for the next time they give me a chance. Hopefully, we’re winning the game and we win the game and I can help out.”
