Tyler “Taylor” Mahle got the start and did largely what Tyler Mahle normally Tyler Mahles - namely, he was quite effective. He allowed just a lone earned run through 6 IP before being tagged with a 2-run dinger in the Bottom of the 7th, but still, that’s about the *worst* we’ve seen from him this year. He walked nary a soul with 5 Ks in the process, too. Tyler “Taylor” Goeddel went 4 for 4 with a run scored atop the batting order on a night when the Bats tallied just 6 total hits, which obviously paced the offense.
Jackson Stephens will look to improve upon his recent outings with a start against Indy on Tuesday. First pitch is set for 7:05 PM ET.
The Blue Wahoos plated a pair of runs in the Bottom of the 8th to put this one on ice, as Josh VanMeter singled to bring in both Arismendy Alcantara and Gabby Guerrero - the latter of which had a perfect 2 for 2, 2 BB, HR, 2 run scored evening. Jonathan Reynoso went 2 for 3 with a steal to augment the offense, but it was truly Deck “Boughs of Holly” McGuire and his 7 innings of 1 ER, 6 K work that did the heavy lifting on the evening.
Keury Mella starts Tuesday for Pensacola, with first pitch scheduled for 6:35 PM CT.
Jose “Rotis” Siri homered. Is that even news anymore since he does that day after day? Siri’s blast was part of a 2 for 5, 2 run night, and helped the Dragons down the Captains. Taylor “Tyler” Trammell chipped in with a damn fine outing of his own, going 2 for 3 with a double, run scored, 2 walks, a ribbie, and 3 more steals - upping his season total to an impressive 38. Both Cassidy “I have seen where the wolf has slept by the silver stream” Brown and Taylor “Tyler” Sparks clubbed dingers, too, which was more than enough to back Scott “Austin” Moss in his 7 IP, 6 H, ER, 0 BB, 5 K start. Nice.
Tony “Taylor Tyler” Santillan will get Tuesday’s start for Dayton, with first pitch set for 7:00 PM ET.
The Osprey rode an 8 run 5th inning to a boot-scootin’ of the Mustangs on Monday. Mac Sceroler struck out 6 against a lone walk in his 4.1 IP, but 6 runs (4 ER) scored on his watch. Hunter Greene went 0 for 4 with 2 Ks, but just getting the chance to type Hunter Greene in bold is enough to warrant typing the name Hunter Greene. In bold. Andy “Gin” Sugilio went 3 for 4 with a double and 2 runs scored, but that was pretty much the highlight.
Tyler “Taylor” Mondile will start for the Mustangs on Tuesday, with first pitch set for 7:00 PM MT.
*Both the Daytona Tytugas and AZL Reds were off on Monday night.
