Kevin Ginkel (Cotuit ‘15) entered last night’s Game 1 Wild Card game with the Diamondbacks leading the Brewers 4-3 in the bottom of the seventh inning. Ginkel recorded six outs in six batters, including four strikeouts, to hold the Diamondbacks lead heading into the ninth.
The Diamondbacks were able to close it out, taking a 1-0 series lead in the best-of-three Wild Card Series.
Ginkel has been a key piece to the Diamondbacks bullpen all season. He finished the regular season with a 9-1 record, 2.48 ERA and 70 strikeouts over 65.1 innings.
