Express add pair of pitchers

The Eau Claire Express added a pair of pitchers on Wednesday, welcoming Kuster Kinlecheenie and Matt Verdun to the fold. The Express now have seven arms on the roster.

Kinlecheenie is in his first season with Montevallo after transferring from Phoenix College. He’s 2-1 with a 3.80 earned runs average, mostly serving in a relief role.

Verdun, a sophomore at Lewis University, has a 7.06 ERA in 21.2 innings of work this year. The Flyers often use him as a designated hitter as well. He’s accounted for three extra base hits but is hitting .185 in 27 at bats.
