Abad is Dominating Dominican Playoffs
Tonight, Fernando Abad pitched 6 no hit innings for Toro del Este. He was pulled because of limits set by the Astros and the pen gave up the no hitter & shutout in the 9th inning. Abad has appeared in four post season games so far this season and has earned the win in all of them. He has started two games and relieved two games. He has only allowed eight hits and three walks in 19 innings pitched while fanning 17 batters. Needless to say, he is leading the league in post season ERA.
