Cotuit, MA — It was that time of the week again in Cotuit, Camron Hill (Georgia Tech) bump day. Hill was the starter in tonight’s contest with the Gatemen as he tossed four innings, punching out six.
“I’m still getting weekly rotation, seven-day routine. But the more and more I do it, the more comfortable I get,” said Hill on his start.
The southpaw makes his way to Cotuit after finishing up his sophomore season with the yellow jackets. This year he made eighteen appearances, striking out thirty-three batters.
Early on in the season, Hill was primarily used as a bullpen arm. Out of the pen, he earned two wins, and he has three on the season, with the third being his start against Hyannis. Hill earned Cape League pitcher of the week honors in the second week of the season. So far this year, he has earned a record of 3-0, posting an ERA of .36 while striking out 34 batters.
“Sometimes I’ll have all three pitches like I did tonight. Sometimes I won’t have it and just got to make do with what I got, and thankfully it’s been working so far,” said Hill on his early success.
With the All-Star game coming up, it would be a surprise if Hill isn’t selected. Either way, the left-hander has a couple more starts left before the season ends, hopefully including a few playoff appearances.
