Paul Abraham, the Storm's setup man, is 2-1 with a 0.97 ERA and 28 strikeouts with eight walks in 37 innings pitched. He did not allow an earned run through his first 20 appearances of the season.
"As a reliever, you have to be ready for short bursts and have a quick recovery so you can throw three, four, five days in a row," Abraham said.
