Webb, Scheppers to Pitch Tonight
Both Brandon Webb and Tanner Scheppers are scheduled to pitch for the RoughRiders tonight in the finale of a four-game series at Corpus Christi.
Webb will pitch four innings or about 65 pitches. This will be his third rehab start with the RoughRiders. Webb has tossed six and a third innings for the ‘Riders this year. In that action, the former Cy Young Award winner has given up five runs on nine hits. All of those runs and eight of those nine hits came in his first start against Tulsa May 30.
Carlos Pimentel will follow Webb. Then, Scheppers is set to pitch two innings for Frisco. Scheppers last pitched in a competitive game April 16 for Triple-A Round Rock. It was his only outing of the 2011 season.
