Mills to AAA, Pitches in Charlotte Wednesday
Former Niner Adam Mills (Class of 2007), was this weekend, promoted to AAA Pawtucket. The PawSox begin a four-game series at the Charlotte Knights, and Mills is now slated to pitch on Wednesday.
Mills, who led the nation in ERA in 2007 with Charlotte, at 1.01 for the season, has won his last eight games, a team record, and nine of his last ten for his former team, Portland, of the Eastern League. He was the first Sea Dog to win six games in a month when we went 6-0 in July.
Mills was drafted by Boston in the eighth round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft and was a consensus first-team All-American for the Niners. He leads all Charlotte pitchers in career wins, starts and shutouts.
