Roger Clemens Strikes Out 2 In Return

Roger Clemens threw 3 ⅓ scoreless frames against the Bridgeport Bluefish on Saturday night in his first baseball game since 2007. The 50-year-old Hall-of-Fame hopeful pitched well for the Sugar Land Skeeters, allowing just one hit and striking out two.

Clemens departed with a 1-0 lead, and did not walk any hitters in his debut. His highest-clocked pitch of his 37 total reached 88 miles-per-hour, and after leaving the mound, Clemens was seen in active conversation with Skeeters teammate Scott Kazmir, former major-league pitcher for the Rays and Angels.

After Clemens left the game, Skeeters manager Gary Gaetti, the former major-league third baseman, said he hopes to have the right-hander pitch again, depending on how Clemens feels, and that he would have left Clemens in if the Dayton native had insisted on continuing his start.

Clemens made his major league debut 28 years ago, and notched 4,672 strikeouts in 23 years. He retired from major league baseball with a 354-184 record and 3.12 ERA.
