The good news in this game is that the offense was good. The bad news is that Vladimir “Bad Glutes” Gutierrez was not. He continued his Triple-A struggles by lasting only 1.2 innings, giving up 6 runs on 4 hits with 3 walks and 2 strikeouts. “General” Jackson Stephens was able to stop the bleeding with 3.1 shutout innings of relief, while allowing only 1 hit and striking out 2. Brian “Beef” O’Grady continued his solid season, going 2 for 3 with a double, 2 walks, and 2 RBI. Phil “Phlervin” Ervin went 2 for 3 and drove in a run while Narciso Crook and Aristides “Heiress Tities” Aquino each hit 2-run dingers.
