Bryce Morrow has become the second Evansville Otter to have his contract purchased by an affiliated team this season. Morrow, a righthanded pitcher, was acquired by the San Diego Padres. He retired 14 consecutive batters at one point on Sunday, but Normal rallied for a 5-4 walk-off win. For the season, Morrow was 6-2 with a 3.29 earned run average for the Otters in 11 starts. He struck out 59 while walking 13 and allowing 64 hits in 71 innings.
Earlier, first baseman Andrew Clark signed with Trenton, the New York Yankees’ Double-A affiliate. Clark hit .421 with seven home runs and 24 runs batted in, in 24 games with Evansville.
