Quaboag alum yields one hit in five innings of work
NASHVILLE — Most look for plastic eggs on Easter Sunday, but West Brookfield’s Thomas Jankins was tossing up goose eggs in his Triple-A debut.
The pitching line didn’t look like that of a 23-year-old kid but rather a savvy veteran as Jankins held the Nashville Sounds to just one hit and two walks over five scoreless innings. The right-hander didn’t record any strikeouts but did pick up the win in his debut at baseball’s highest minor league level. Relievers Josh Fields and Taylor Williams each worked an inning in relief of Jankins for the combined one-hit shutout victory for the San Antonio Missions.
