Shane “I” Carle struck out two in a scoreless innings of relief. Alejo “Aloha” Lopez hit his first homerun since being promoted to AAA while going 2 for 5 and knocking in four total runners. Logan Morrison doubled and walked twice, and Errol “Lorre” Robinson walked thrice and scored two runs.
Michael “Hotel” Mariot pitched five shutout innings on three hits, two walks, while striking out three. Cionel “Cyclops” Perez struck out two in a scoreless inning of relief. Alejo “Sneeze” Lopez can’t be stopped. He went 2 for 5 with two doubles and a run scored, Dwight Smith Jr. went 2 for 3 with a RBI and a walk, and TJ Friedl went 2 for 3 with a walk and a run scored.
Josh “Big Bird” Osich struck out six in three innings of shutout relief, and Edgar Garcia struck out the side in his appearance. Alejo “The Mighty” Lopez went 1 for 3 with a solo dinger, two walks, while scoring two runs for the Bats. I don’t know what to say about this guy anymore except that he’s on another level. Dwight Smith Jr. went 2 for 5 with a homer as well and two total RBI.
Hunter Greene is ridonkulous. In Greene’s final start for Chattanooga before being called up, he only threw six shutout innings allowing just two hits, four walks, while striking out nine. He threw 106 pitches. “Finding” Dauri Moreta struck out five in two shutout innings, and Nick “Second Chance” Howard struck out the side to pick up his third save of the year.
Lookouts 6, Wahoos 1
Nick “YOLO” Lodolo refuses to be outdone but he’s also struggling with some blister issues which shortened his outing. Still, Lodolo pitched 3.1 shutout innings while allowing only three hits, no walks, while striking out seven. If you think Hunter Greene has been impressive, Lodolo has been even better which is scary. The bullpen wasn’t terrible but it also wasn’t great. Jose “Fish In A” Barrero went 3 for 4 with two runs scored.
Randy “Won’t” Wynne gave up three earned over five innings on six hits, no walks, while striking out three. Jose “Oh Eeeh Oh” Barrero socked a three run dinger and Brian “Sey Hey” Rey walked twice.
Graham “Booty Ship” Ashcraft was stellar, as he has been all season. Ashcraft pitched six shutout innings while only allowing two hits, no walks, while striking out ten. Andy Fisher “Of Men” struck out four in 1.2 shutout innings of relief, and Jake “Gilly” Gilbert struck out two in 1.1 scoreless innings as well. Eric Yang knocked in the lone run for the Dragons on a double.
Pedro Garcia struck out three in 1.2 innings of relief, and Matt “Fish” Gill struck out two in two perfect innings. Miguel Hernandez was 2 for 3 with a double and a run scored, and Quincy McAfee knocked in two with a double.
Spiers and Peguero both pitched scoreless innings out of the pen after the starter, Lyon Richardson, and the rest of the bullpen mucked it up. Jonathan Willems hit a solo dinger, Francis “Urby” Urbaez went 2 for 4 with a RBI and a run scored, and Miguel Hernandez went 2 for 3 with a RBI and a run scored.
Garrett “Were” Wolforth socked a solo dinger, walked, and scored two runs. Michel Triana “Gle” went 2 for 4 with a double and two RBI, and Gus “The Bus” Steiger went 2 for 3 with a double, RBI, and a walk.
Hayden “Jerry” Shenefield struck out four in 3.1 shutout innings of relief. Vellojin hit a solo dinger.
Wilfred “Little Turtle” Astudillo went 3 for 5 with a solo dinger and two runs scored, Leonardo Seminati went 1 for 2 with a two run dinger, two walks, and two runs scored, and Danny Lantigua homered as well. Gus Steiger went 2 for 4 with a RBI.
