Going into this start, right-hander Jose Campos compiled a 3-0 record through three starts with a sparkling 0.56 ERA, and though he failed to pick up his fourth win in as many starts or lower his ERA, this start on Sunday against the West Virginia Power (Single-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates) was another step in the right direction.

Campos wasn’t as dominant in this start as he has been his previous three, but he was able to pitch 6 innings, allowing two runs while striking out five and walking just one. He allowed eight hits, however, and one of the runs he allowed came in the second (2-out triple) while the other came in the fourth (run scoring single, error). Six of the eight hits he allowed were singles, while also allowing a double and a triple. Campos threw 88 pitches, 61 for strikes in total, and you can read the entire box score HERE.
The Charleston River Dogs did trail 3-0 going into the bottom of the ninth before scoring four to get the walk-off win, which is pretty exciting in itself. Campos’ next start may be on Friday the 27 against the Lexington Legends (Single-A affiliate of the Houston Astros), though don’t set that in stone. If you have the MiLB.tv subscription, you can watch that potential start for Campos as well as Charleston’s games on Tuesday-Thursday. If he doesn’t start on Friday, expect him to start Saturday against the Hickory Crawdads (single-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers), though that won’t be shown on MiLB.tv.

4 starts, 3-0, 22 IP, 1.23 ERA, 13 H, 23 K, 5 BB, 22/12 Groundout/ Flyout
