Rockies call up Chiefland native Bowers

-A A +A

The good news is, Cedrick Bowers has made it to the Major Leagues.

The former Chiefland High pitching standout was called up by the Colorado Rockies from their AAA Colorado Springs Sky Sox team last Tuesday, July 1.

Since then, Bowers has been used in three games. The hard-throwing lefthander was solid is his first career outing on Wednesday, July 2, against the San Diego Padres, as he fired a shutout inning of relief work in a Rockies victory.

But the bad news is, were a little shaky for Bowers in his next two outings.

On Friday, July 4 against the Florida Marlins, Bowers gave up five hits and five runs in two innings work.

On Sunday, July 6, Bowers surrendered two hits and a run in 2/3 of an inning.

That put Bowers season line at 3 2/3 innings, eight hits, six runs, two walks and one strikeout. His ERA is 14.73.

Rockies brass is hoping Bowers settles down and has a productive second half for the pitching-starved National League team.

It has been Bowers' lifelong dream to pitch in the bigs.

The 30-year-old earned a trip up by ging 4-1 with a 2.97 ERA with the Sky Sox.
