Former Washington State Cougars pitcher Adam Conley made his second start on Monday since being recalled from Triple-A on July 18. Conley led the Miami Marlins to a 4-0 win over the Texas Rangers, throwing seven scoreless innings and allowing seven hits while striking out five and walking none.

In his first start back, he threw 6 innings and gave up 2 runs on 8 hits and started to find his groove. Conley definitely seemed back to his 2016-self on Monday when Rangers second baseman Adrian Beltre said, “We couldn’t find a way out of a crafty lefty.”

The Redmond, Washington native and 2011 second round pick was sent down to Triple-A New Orleans in May after going 2-3 in with a 7.53 ERA in his 6 starts to begin the season. In a game against the St. Louis Cardinals in May, Conley threw 3.2 innings and gave up seven runs on six hits which ultimately got him sent down.

Things didn’t improve much in New Orleans for Conley as he went 1-3 with a 6.70 ERA in 9 starts. The Marlins saw improvement though as they brought him back up and has since been what the Marlins knew they had.
