Bryan Gore proved consistent enough over four seasons to make AAA

Bryan Gore joined the AA Tulsa Drillers in 1991 and earned praise from his coaches by July as the club's most consistent pitcher, The Oklahoman wrote.

Gore had gone 6-5 by that point and recorded a 3.53 ERA, The Oklahoman wrote.

"That makes me feel real good," Gore told The Oklahoman of the praise. "To me the key is being consistent. You can't be up and down. My goals are basically to stay healthy and be consistent."

Gore's consistency eventually earned him a promotion to AAA Oklahoma City. He didn't get higher. His 1992 campaign proved his last.

Gore's career began in 1989, taken by the Rangers in the 22nd round of the draft out of Oklahoma State University.

Gore started with the Rangers at single-A Gastonia. He arrived quickly, The Charlotte Observer wrote.

"I think he'll help the club," Gastonia manager Orlando Gomez told The Observer. "He could start or pitch in relief. He was good in college and he can get lefthanders out."

Gore went 5-2 for Gastonia that year, with a 3.96 ERA in 24 outings, four starts. He moved to high-A Port Charlotte in 1990, where he ended 9-4, with a 2.19 ERA in 23 outings, 15 starts.

Gore arrived at Tulsa for 1991 and played the season there. He ended with a 4.28 ERA and a 7-8 record in 27 outings, 12 starts. He also saved two games.

He then returned to Tulsa for 23 outings in 1992 and also saw six outings, three starts at Oklahoma City. He went 1-0 there, with a 3.43 ERA. That season proved his last as a pro.
