“‘O” Riley O’Brien danced around all the trouble bet kept the Bats out of ultimate trouble. He allowed two earned runs over 5.2 innings on six hits, four walks, and five strikeouts. Oh boy, the bullpen was bad. Dwight “Good Night” Smith Jr. went 2 for 3 with two RBI and a walk. Alfredo “Sauce” Rodriguez went 2 for 4, and Mike “Liberty” Freeman doubled in a run.
Matt “Fat” Pidich gave up five earned runs over 3.1 innings by giving up seven hits, two walks, while striking out only one. While a lot of other bad stuff happened Miguel “Opera Python” Figueroa pitched two scoreless innings, and John “Old Faithful” Ghyzel struck out three in 1.2 scoreless innings. Leonardo “Windy” Rivas went 2 for 3 with a double and a walk. Brian “Say Hey” Rey knocked in two.
Spencer “Chicken” Stockton gave up five earned over five innings. He did strike out six but also allowed six hits, two walks, and two dingers. Francisco “Fresh” Urbaez struck out one in his scoreless inning of relief. The Dragons stranded 26 runners on the bases in this game. That feels like a record. Jacob “Tortoise” Hurtubise went 3 for 3 with a walk, RBI, three stolen bases, and a run scored. Miguel “Miggy” Hernandez doubled, walked twice, and scored two runs, and James “Born” Free went 2 for 3 with two doubles, a walk, two RBI, and a run scored.
