This Weekend was a special one for Binghamton grad Mike Augliera. He started Friday nights game for the Portland Seadogs against the B-Mets in front of his former college coaches and teammates. The right hander went 7 innings giving up 2 earned runs with 3 strikeouts.
The former Bearcat has done well in the Eastern League posting a 2-2 record with a 3.48 ERA in 5 starts and the minor league ride has just begun for the 23 year old.
"I was confident in my abilities but in college I never really thought I would have the chance to play pro ball, let alone come back here to play in Double A, said Augliera." I'm not surprised because I thought I always had the talent to, I worked hard for it. Hopefully the ride keeps going."
The Boston Red Sox selected the right hander in the 5th round of the 2012 MLB Draft. Mike has the most wins in BU Baseball program history with 23.
