ASU alum Brad Allen shines in California League debut


VISALIA, CA ( - It's been a season of firsts for Brad Allen.

Allen earned his first professional promotion this week and, on Saturday, earned the win in his California League debut.

The D-backs prospect allowed two hits and struck out eight batters over six innings, pitching Class A Advanced Visalia to a 2-0 victory over Stockton at Banner Island Ballpark

"Trust me, it's been crazy sometimes," said Allen, who signed with the D-backs out of an independent league last December. "I woke up this morning and said, 'Wow, I'm in California. How did I get all the way over here?'

"But it's been fun and I've learned a lot and met a lot of great people in the organization. Every step I take, I hope it keeps going."
