Alexander Smit Dispatches - The Swing Play the Blues

Tough night Tuesday for Beloit lefty Alexander Smit, coming on the back of his Midwest League Pitcher of the Week award.

Smit lasted just three innings and a batter, allowing 3 runs on six hits and six walks. It was his worst outing since joining the rotation in June. Last night was his tenth start.

The Swing of the Quad Cities won 4-3, the winning run coming in the 6th inning by which time Smit was out of the game. This is a crucial series in the Western Division as Beloit and Quad Cities chase the final playoff spot. Quad Cities now lead by a game-and-a-half.

With 14 regular season games remaining, Smit figures to get two, possibly three more starts. Overall, he has posted a 6-1 record with a 3.40 ERA and 1.28 WHiP. In 87.1 innings, he has struck out 111 batters and walked 43.
