There isn’t much that pitcher Jordan Humphreys has done wrong this season, to say the least.

After the Columbia Fireflies of the South Atlantic League (SAL) trounced the Augusta GreenJackets, 8-2, Tuesday night at Spirits Communication Park, the big righty ran his record to 8-1 and lowered his ERA to a sparkling 1.40.

The Crystal River, Florida, native allowed just one earned run and fanned eight in six innings of work against the GreenJackets yesterday. Humphreys is tied with MLB’s Houston Astros All-Star pitcher Dallas Keuchel for victories in all of professional baseball.

The 21-year-old ex-Brooklyn Cyclone went six innings for the seventh time in nine starts.

Humphreys, the New York Mets’ former 18-round pick in the 2015 MLB amateur draft, currently owns a minor league career mark of 11-7 with a 2.55 ERA across 144.2 innings in 29 games, 22 of which were starts.

While with the Cyclones in 2016, the six-foot-two-inch, 225-pound hurler posted a 0-1 record with nine strikeouts in six innings.
