Adelaide Bite teenager dazzles in MiLB debut
06/22/2018 1:17 AM ET

Each week will provide a wrap-up of some key performances from locals and ABL alumni from the previous week. Find out who has done what in the past week below!


Adelaide Bite teenager Jack O'Loughlin impressed in his MiLB debut, tossing four scoreless innings for Detroit's Class-A affiliate Connecticut Tigers on Wednesday morning (Australian time).

O'Loughlin, 18, recorded five strikeouts and did not give up a hit in a solid start for the Tigers.

The left-hander allowed one base runner on a hit-by-pitch but otherwise looked in control as he used 55 pitches to navigate four frames.

Canberra infielder Cameron Warner has started the season alongside O'Loughlin at Connecticut and is hitting .385 in the early stages.

He had two doubles on Thursday.

Perth's Ulrich Bojarski joined the pair this week after spending time with Class A (Full) West Michigan Whitecaps.

Elsewhere, Heat duo Jesse Williams and Alex Hall made their first MiLB appearances with the Milwaukee Brewers' rookie-ball team during the past week.

Williams went 2-for-3 with a triple and two runs batted in in his debut while Hall did not collect a hit in his one game.

New Zealander Kyle Glogoski (Sydney Blue Sox) also made his debut at rookie-ball level.

He punched out three in two scoreless innings for Phillies West in the Gulf Coast League earlier today.

In this morning's other action, Lewis Thorpe (Melbourne Aces) tossed a gem for Double A Chattanooga Lookouts.

Thorpe finished with a career-high 12 strikeouts, allowing one hit and a walk in seven scoreless innings for his fourth win of the season.
