Carl Stewart, Fine Start - 3221

Carl Stewart had himself a fine start this game in August 1991.

Pitching for the single-A Charleston Wheelers, Stewart went eight innings, giving up five hits and just two earned runs. He also struck out 10, picking up the win, according to The Charleston (S.C.) News and Courier.

The win, though, was only Stewart's seventh of the year, to 10 losses. He'd end the year at 8-12.

For Stewart, he was in his third professional season with time on the mound. He would go on to pitch in six. He'd never pitch higher than AA.

Stewart's pro career began in 1988, taken by the Reds in the 8th round, out of Plano High School in Texas, Stewart signing as a 17-year-old.

With the Reds, Stewart started in the rookie Gulf Coast League and at Billings. The hurler got two outings in Florida, then just one at Billings. He gave up three earned runs in just three innings of work.

He then isn't credited as playing at all in 1989. He then returned for 1990 to Billings as a starter. In 14 starts with Billings, Stewart went 3-4, with a 4.15 ERA.

Stewart moved to Charleston in 1991, staying there into 1993. In his 1993 campaign, Stewart got his first look at high-A Winston-Salem and AA Chattanooga. He got 14 starts at Winston-Salem and a 5-2 record. At Chattanooga, he got 10 starts, and a 3-4 record.

Stewart's final season came in 1994, getting just nine outings, six starts, back at Chattanooga. He ended with a 1-6 record and a 5.40 ERA.
