Uvila fall league

SURPRISE, Ariz. — Port Angeles High School product Cole Uvila recently wrapped his second season pitching in the Texas Rangers minor league organization.

Uvila and his Class A-Advanced Down East Wood Ducks went a Carolina League-best 87-52 this season before being knocked out in the Carolina League Semi-Finals last week.

Uvila made one postseason appearance, striking out three and walking four while allowing no runs in a 1 1/3-inning stint Sept. 7.

In the regular season, Uvila was a combined 7-3 in 38 games, posting a 2.23 ERA in 64.2 innings with 95 strikeouts and 49 walks with Down East and the Hickory Crawdads.

He was selected as one of seven Rangers prospects to compete in the six-team Arizona Fall League as a member of the Surprise Saguaros. The Saguaros begin Fall League play today in a six-week campaign.
