Sinclair, a rookie signed off the RiverHawks' roster by the Arizona Diamondbacks last month, is with their Rookie-level affiliate in Missoula. Ben Moore, a member of the RiverHawks' host family program, emails more information on Sinclair.

Pioneer League
Taylor Sinclair, Missoula

2-0, 0.00 ERA, 2 G, 2 GS, 12.0 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 13 SO
It's not so much Sinclair's back-to-back scoreless starts that are impressive, or the fact that he's held opponents scoreless in four of his six starts with Missoula. No, what's most impressive is that Sinclair was the man who stopped Orem. Over a two-week span in which the Owlz didn't lose another game, the left-hander was the only one to shut down their potent offense. On Monday, Sinclair allowed just two hits in six scoreless innings. Sinclair then turned his attention to the league's other first-place team -- Billings -- on Sunday, striking out eight Mustangs over six scoreless innings. The Pioneer League, usually known as a hitter's haven, hasn't looked that way to Sinclair, who has a 3.27 ERA through 33 innings this summer.

Sinclair is 4-1 with 33 strikeouts and four walks in 33 innings for the Osprey.
