Conor Spink BaseballConor Spink of Eagle River continues to provide remarkable relief pitching for the Lincoln Saltdogs of the American Association.

The 26-year-old southpaw recorded five outs over the seventh and eighth innings in an 8-6 victory over Wichita in independent pro ball in Nebraska.

Spink, of Chugiak High fame, earned his fourth hold of the season as the team’s primary setup man. He allowed just one hit and struck out two of the six batters he faced.

The lefty lowered his ERA to 0.45 in 19.2 innings over 14 appearances. His record is 3-0.

He has been especially lights out over the last two weeks, retiring 21 of the last 22 batters over the last five games.

Spink’s current scoreless streak is 6.2 innings.
