Zabala (who also hit triple digits while pitching against the Dragons earlier in the season) may have great stuff, but he’s still just a prospect for a reason.
The 21-year-old was also touched for the eventual game-winning two-run home run by Nolan Jones before his inning of work was complete.
Zabala’s record fell to 2-3 on the season. He has an ERA of 5.21 with 32 strikeouts and 25 walks in 38 innings.
Another new addition, Lorenzo Cedrola, brought the Dragons to within a run with an RBI single in the sixth Thursday night, but the Captains held on for a 5-4 win.
Zabala replaced Andrew Jordan, who was promoted to advanced-A Daytona.
Austin Orewiler is set to take Jordan’s spot in the starting rotation Friday night against the Great Lakes Loons in Midland, Mich.
