Elliott Gray, Good Week - 3057

Elliott Gray had a good week for the Clearwater Phillies in June 1991.

During that week, the Clearwater starter picked up two wins and went 15 innings, giving up eight hits and just a single earned run.

With the Phillies, Gray started at rookie Martinsville, getting 22 outings, five starts and a 4.29 ERA.

For 1990, Gray moved to single-A Spartanburg and short-season Batavia. Between them, he went 6-4 in 14 starts. He also posted a 2.47 ERA.

Gray moved to single-A Clearwater in 1991, getting 20 starts there. He also went 10-4, with a 2.45 ERA. In a June start, he went five innings, giving up three runs, two earned. Also in 1991, Gray got his first look at AA Reading. He got seven starts there, but went 0-2, with a 5.16 ERA.
