McGowin To The Show

Pierson alumni Kyle McGowin, a Sag Harbor native, is headed for The Show.

McGowin, a right-hander for the Syracuse Chiefs who has shined in Triple AAA since a midseason promotion, will be moving up to the Washington Nationals’ bullpen this week.

The six-foot three-inch 185 pounder was 2-2 with a sparkling 1.32 earned run average and a stingy WHIP of .0731, which is how many base runners he has allowed per nine innings. McGowin, 26, never known as a strikeout pitcher, has improved in that area as well, notching 39 in 47 2/3 innings for Syracuse.
