SALISBURY, Maryland (WCTV) -- Former Valdosta High School hurler DL Hall is having a tremendous start to his 2018 minor league baseball season.

With the Low-A Delmarva Shorebirds, Hall has logged a 1.13 ERA in three starts spanning eight innings of work. Despite starting three games, Hall hasn't pitched more than three innings in an outing this year.

Hall tossed three scoreless one-hit innings last night against the Kannapolis Intimidators (White Sox), but his Shorebirds fell 3-0.

MLBPipeline.com lists Hall as the number five prospect in the Orioles organization, and has seen his 2018 start better than his 2017 went. In the Gulf Coast League last year, Hall was rocked for a 6.97 ERA in five games.

Hall is still looking for his first decision of his professional career, and is slated to pitch next on Sunday.
