Downey to Play in Cape Cod League

racers baseb1 300MURRAY, Ky. (6/12/14) — Murray State left hander Brock Downey will have a chance to showcase his talents this summer by playing for the Wareham Gatemen in the prestigious Cape Cod Baseball League.

Downey received a call earlier this week, and was asked to report as soon as possible. The CCBL kicked off their season Wednesday, with the Gatemen falling 4-2 in their season opener.

Downey recently completed a standout season at MSU where he was named the Ohio Valley Conference Co-Pitcher of the Year. He finished the season going 9-3 with a 2.76 ERA in a school record 107.2 innings. Downey struck out 74 and held opponents to a .241 batting average against.

Downey went at least six innings in 12 of his 13 starts, including throwing a career-best 9.1 innings against Eastern Illinois. After not allowing a run in back-to-back starts against North Dakota State and Morehead State, Downey allowed just one earned run and struck out 12 in a complete-game victory over UT Martin.

He closed out the season by striking out eight in a complete-game victory over Eastern Kentucky.
