His team recently returned from the all-star break, but there has been no break in Evan Sisk’s impressive performances on the mound.
The former Lewisville and College of Charleston standout is now pitching for the St. Paul Saints, the triple-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins. After a break of nearly a week, the team recently returned to action against the Indianapolis Indians and Sisk made an appearance in relief. In 1.1 innings of work, he did issue three walks, but he also struck out three batters while not allowing a run or a hit. With that performance, the lefty lowered his ERA to 1.64 and opposing batters are hitting just .143 against him. For the season (which has been split between double-A Wichita and St. Paul), Sisk has appeared in 29 games (all in relief) and is 4-0 with one save and an ERA of 1.14. In 39.1 innings pitched, he has yielded just 21 hits and allowed five runs while walking 19 batters and striking out 43.
