Nationals prospect LHP Matt Purke was knocked around in his Double-A debut on Sunday, allowing seven runs on nine hits and a walk in three innings.
Purke, 23, was moved up to Double-A Harrisburg despite a dismal showing during the spring in major league camp. Last year, the left-hander posted a 3.80 ERA and 82/25 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 90 innings between both Class-A levels. Considering he's signed to a major league contract through the 2014 season, this will likely be Purke's final year to contribute in the major leagues before hitting free agency. Apr 7 - 12:25 PM
