EVERYTHING EVERGREENS (FOX SPORTS WAUSAU-WSAU) Now that the season is over, here are the final records for the Evergreen's top pitchers of 2014. I've added my own quick comments. The Evergreens lost their top two pitchers from a year ago, I'd thought the team's pitching staff wouldn't be as good. I was partly right. Pitching turned out to be adequate. And there are many good younger arms coming up through the JV.
Brady Borrell (6-3)
The clear number-1 pitcher on the staff, even though I still think of him as more of a thrower than a pitcher. Brady struggled to get his curve over the plate all season, but was still a gutty pitcher who gave the team go-to wins. His complete game playoff win against Rhinelander was outstanding, as was his tough-luck 1-0 loss to SPASH.
Austin Solomon (2-1)
He didn't pitch much towards the end of the season after leaving mid-start after an injury. He showed a consistent ability to battle back after sometimes falling behind in the count. He'll probably be the team's top pitcher next year.
Austin Behrens (2-2)
He showed tremendous growth on the mound, moving from JV to varsity and pitching into the playoffs. With normal development, he'll play a big role on next year's team.
Ryan Kell (1-0)
Saw limited action, usually coming out of the bullpen with runners on-base. He got the teams out of some jams this year.
Logan Langbehn (1-0)
He gave the Evergreens quality innings this year, laying the foundation for bigger things next year. Logan is usually around the strike zone. He's one of the up-and-comers from the JV who got some valuable varsity experience.
Alex Kell (0-0)
He was pitching almost exclusively in the late innings and was the closest thing the team had to a closer. He had a lively fastball that many teams struggled to catch up with.
Sean Leudtke (0-4)
His won/loss record is deceiving. He was wild early in the year, but turned into a valuable left-handed arm down the stretch. I loved his two innings of work in the playoffs vs. Antigo.
