Jesus “Bread and Fish” Reyes took the start and fed the Clippers well. He gave up four earned runs over five innings on four hits, five walks, while striking out only two. Alex “International Man of Mystery” Powers struck out one in a perfect inning of relief. Christian “Repent” Colon continues to put together a mighty fine season. He went 2 for 5 with a two run dinger. Ryan “Clutch” Lavarnway smacked a solo dinger. Rob Refsnyder went 3 for 5 with a double and a RBI. Derek “Let It Fly” Dietrich went 2 for 4 with a HBP, obviously, and two runs scored in his rehab appearance.
Packy “Sacky” Naughton didn’t have his best stuff. Naughton, gave up five earned runs over five innings on eight hits, two walks, while striking out three. Cory “Flip Flop” Thompson struck out one in two scoreless innings. Jonathan “Delhi” India went 2 for 4 with a double and a run scored. Tyler Stephenson went 1 for 3 with a walk, and Michael Beltre tripled and walked. Stephenson, just for your information, is quietly having a real good year in AA. He was hitting .282/.375/.411 on the season which obviously went up tonight.
Daytona had the night off.
“Yo” Adrian Rodriguez was the starter and pitched real well, but his defense let him down. Rodriguez tossed six innings without giving up an earned run (four total) on three hits, no walks, while striking out five. He did give up a dinger which isn’t counted to him based on the error rule. I don’t like that rule but it’s whatever. Mike “The Franchise” Siani went 2 for 4 with a RBI and a run scored.
Noah “Big Water” Davis pitched masterfully. Davis, pitched five shutout innings on two hits, one walk, while striking out eight. Quincy “Adams” McAfee went 2 for 4, Jonathan “Grounds Keeper” Willems doubled, tripled, walked, drove in a run, and scored a run. Reniel Ozuna went 2 for 4 with a walk.
Jake “The Snake” Gilbert gave up six earned runs over two innings so let’s talk more about some bullpen arms. Dan “The Man” Serreino struck out two in two shutout innings, and Johnathan “Captain” Tripp did the same. Christian Olivia singled and walked, and Mike “Little” Spooner did the same but also knocked in the lone run.
