Summary: The native Pennsylvanian returned to familiar territory over the weekend, making his return as a pro to his home state Friday through Sunday during a road trip against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. The Cumberland Valley/Villanova grad tossed a scoreless inning with three strikeouts and a walk in front of friends and family in his only appearance of the series Saturday.

P Ben Dum
Team: Elizabethton Twins (Twins, Single-A rookie)
Last week’s stats: 1-1, 4.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 8 K
Summary: The West Perry product continued to get used in multiple innings in his first run with a minor league organization. Dum made three appearances last week, including two more that lasted two innings. He’s now tossed 6.2 innings since joining Minnesota’s rookie team. Dum did get rocked for four hits and two runs in a loss at Kingsport that lasted just two-thirds of an inning, but he bounced back with stronger performances in his next two outings, striking out three each time.
Turns out, the wait wasn’t too long.
