Bruso pitches eight scoreless innings

It took longer than expected, but Greg Bruso picked up his first minor league pitching victory of the season Tuesday night.

Bruso, a 1999 South Tahoe High grad, pitched eight scoreless innings in High Desert’s 12-1 California League romp over Lake Elsinore.

The right-hander scattered seven hits, fanned four and walked none. Bruso (1-5) escaped a two-out first- and second-base jam in the second and a two-out second-and-third situation in the fourth.

The 2004 season has been trying for Bruso after missing several months while rehabilitating a shoulder injury. After advancing to the Double-A level last year in his first full season in the minors, Bruso was sent down to Single-A High Desert to start his season.
