Former Tech Baseball Player Makes Pro Debut

Former Tennessee Tech Golden Eagle baseball player Ryan Dennick made his professional debut over the weekend, tossing three innings in relief for the Burlington Royals in a 4-0 loss at Johnson City. Dennick didn't get a decision in his first appearance, but did strike out four batters. He entered the game to start the bottom of the sixth inning with the Royals trailing, 2-0. He held the Cardinals scoreless for two innings, stranding a runner at third in the sixth and pitching a 1-2-3 seventh inning. Burlington plays its first home game of the season Monday night, hosting Bluefield at 7 p.m., to open a six-game homestand.
