Clemens Pitches 4 2-3 Innings For Skeeters
SUGAR LAND, Texas (AP) — Roger Clemens pitched 4 2-3 scoreless innings for Sugar Land of the independent Atlantic League with his oldest son Koby catching him on Friday night against Long Island
The seven-time Cy Young winner pitched a perfect first inning before getting his only strikeout when he caught Brandon Sing looking to start the second. The first hit was a two-out single by Matt Esquivel in the second. He retired the side in the third and allowed one hit — a single — in the fourth. He retired the first two in the fifth before hugging his son and heading to the dugout.
He threw 3 1-3 scoreless innings in his first start for the Skeeters last month.
The 50-year-old Clemens last pitched in the majors for the New York Yankees in 2007.
