Breaking news: Cloyd takes Hamels' spot in rotation
Left-hander Cole Hamels will not start tonight's game due to a gastro illness, according to the team's official twitter. Going instead: right-hander Tyler Cloyd, who earned International League pitcher of the year honors Tuesday afternoon. Cloyd, who needs no introduction on Beerleaguer, brings with him an impressive resume. The 25-year-old righty was 12-1 with a 2.35 ERA with the IronPigs, holding Triple-A opponents to a .210 batting average, including a .173 BAA against righty hitters. Cloyd was scheduled to start for Lehigh Valley tonight.
