HARRISBURG -- Righthander Aaron Nola had a sparkling Double-A debut last week for Reading against Harrisburg. The rematch against the Harrisburg Senators at Metro Bank Park, didn’t go as smoothly.
Nola allowed three runs in four innings, with all three coming on solo home runs in Wednesday’s rematch. He surrendered six hits, while striking out two and walking one. Nola, the No. 7 overall pick in the June draft from LSU, threw 78 pitches, 51 for strikes.
His fastball topped at 94 MPH. One of those 94 MPH fastballs was belted for a home run by Jason Martinson.
For what it's worth, Reading won the seven-inning game, 8-4. It was the first game of a doubleheader.
