The Brandon Larson Honorary Star of the Night
Tony Santillan - 5.2 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 11 K
Tony Santillan continues to have the best season of his minor league career. After posting a 2.70 ERA in the first half for Daytona, he earned the call up to Double-A Pensacola and hasn’t missed a beat. He had a 2.28 ERA for the Wahoos going into Monday’s outing and improved on that number with another fantastic outing. He threw 5.2 shutout innings and allowed only 4 hits, walked 2 batters, and struck out 11. That’s some damn fine work.
The Bats couldn’t overcome an early deficit and ended up falling 6-4 to Toledo on Monday. Justin Nicolino got the start and was not good. He allowed 4 runs on 10 hits over 5 innings while walking none and striking out 4. Gabriel “The Destroyer” Guerrero brought the lumber, going 3 for 5 with a double and 2 solo dingers. “Stone Cold” Steve Selsky went 2 for 4 and so did Josh “Feed The” VanMeter, who added a double.
Jose Lopez starts tonight at 7:05 PM ET.
