Waipahu High School product Jerome Williams, pitching for the Shreveport (La.) Swamp Dragons (Giants, Double-A), scattered four hits in a 7-0 victory yesterday over the visiting Tulsa Drillers in a Texas League game.

It was the third consecutive victory for Williams (3-1), who said he has adjusted his delivery after a couple of rough outings.

Last week, the right-hander allowed two runs on two hits and a walk in five innings as Shreveport won at Tulsa, 4-2, in 17 innings.

"I changed it to what I did in high school," he said. "I went back to overhead, and I'm throwing more fastballs. It's helping me spot my pitches better."

Williams said he has stopped using his curveball because of soreness in his elbow, but mixes in a slider and change-up at times.
