Philadelphia Phillies top prospect Andrew Painter dominates in Seven Inning Gem

Amidst the mediocrity of the Philadelphia Phillies’ major league club, it went relatively under the radar yesterday that Andrew Painter dominated again in the third start of his Double A career.

The 19-year-old pitching phenom turned seven strong innings against a tough Yard Goats lineup, allowing just one run on eight hits while striking out nine.

Painter has done it all and then some this season. Across three levels, he has managed 20 starts, culminating in 94.2 innings of 1.24 ERA baseball. He has allowed just 57 hits in that span and has walked just 24 batters. Conversely, he has struck out 141 batters. Those kinds of numbers over the course of nearly 100 innings are borderline unfathomable.
