Another brilliant night for left-hander Zach Britton, who registered his first Triple-A victory by holding Columbus scoreless on five hits over 7 1/3 innings in Norfolk’s 4-0 win.
Britton’s ERA is 1.50 in three starts since moving up from Double-A Bowie. He threw a scoreless inning for Team USA in the Futures Game before making tonight’s start.
Britton struck out three and walked one.
How much longer before we’re watching his major league debut?
Columbus led the International League in hitting before tonight, which meant nothing to Britton.
Michael Aubrey homered twice for the Tides, which probably meant something to Britton.
