Three Former NWAC Pitchers active in the MLB Divisional Series - TVCC Alum Jason Hammel projected starter Tuesday for Cubs
Cubs' Jason Hammel: Will start Tuesday's Game 4
Jason Hammel [Treasure Valley CC] will start Game 4 of the NLDS on Tuesday against the Cardinals, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Hammel looked strong in his final outing of the regular season, tossing five shutout innings with five strikeouts and no walks to end the year with a 3.74 ERA. Barring an emergency relief appearance in Monday's Game 3, he'll take the hill Tuesday for the fourth playoff start of his career.
Hammel's teammate relief pitcher Zac Rosscup (Chemeketa CC, 2009) is another former NWAC option for Chicago.
Also gaining bullpen time for the Texas Rangers in the ALDS is Keone Kela who played for Everett CC in 2012.
Kela has appeared twice during the series against the Blue Jays going 2.0 innings with 2 SO, 1 hit, 1 ER and recorded the win on Friday.
