The 6'1", 200 lb. right-hander started one game for the Thunder last week and posted a record of 1-0 with 15 strikeouts and a 0.00 ERA. Warren, who is a native of New Bern, North Carolina, made his lone appearance of the week on Wednesday night against the visiting Bowie Baysox and threw seven shutout innings to help lead the Thunder to a 3-0 victory. He allowed only two hits and walked one batter while striking out a franchise-record 15 batters, topping the previous franchise record of 14 strikeouts, which was set by Shannon Withem on August 14, 1994.
