Rookie righty West unhittable to begin career
How about the quick start by right-handed pitcher Aaron West in his professional career?

West, selected by the Astros in the 17th round of this year's Draft out of the University of Washington, has made six starts for short-season Tri-City and is 4-0 with a 0.88 ERA. In 30 2/3 innings, he's allowed just 15 hits, two walks and three runs, while striking about 26 batters.

On Friday against Vermont, he threw seven scoreless innings, allowing two hits and no walks, and struck out seven batters.
