The eight innings equaled Kerry’s previous career high last July for Double-A Rocket City. His only run allowed came on an eighth-inning sac fly. Kerry struck out four in the game.

He is 1-0 this season with a 3.42 ERA in four starts for the Bees. In 2024, Kerry had a 2.56 ERA and 0.93 WHIP with 36 strikeouts in 31.2 innings.

About Brett Kerry

Kerry advanced to Double-A Rocket City in 2021, allowing four runs to score in a 14.1-inning cup of coffee introduction to professional baseball.

The 6’0, 213-pound Kerry spent all of 2022 and most of 2023 with Rocket City before a late-season promotion to Salt Lake. He had a 3.88 ERA in 20 starts (118.1 IP) for Rocket City but struggled to find the same success with the Bees. Kerry finished the year with a 9.72 ERA and 2.28 WHIP in 16.2 innings for Salt Lake.

Kerry opened 2024 with two appearances with Rocket City before a promotion to Salt Lake in mid-April.
