SeaWolves Win; Thompson Traded to Texas (7-23-14)
Detroit Tigers prospect Jake Thompson made his first start at Jerry Uht Park and pitched five innings allowing just one run. He struck out five. Shortly after the SeaWolves 6-1 win over Reading, Thompson was traded to the Texas Rangers along with former SeaWolf reliever Corey Knebel. In exchange, the Tigers acquired Rangers closer Joakim Soria.
