Considering half the AAA rotation is in MLB with the Reds right now, it’s easy to see why they were bashed on Tuesday. Bo Takahashi was dinged for 7 ER in just 4.0 IP, while Braden “Jeff Man” Shipley took a few on the chin, too. The Bats did bang out 12 hits, at least, with Alejo Lopez and his 3 hits again pacing things atop the order. Chris “Live” Okey surfaced with a dinger, while TJ Friedl doubled, walked, and scored thrice.
Chattanooga sacked their home state thanks to a 4-run 3rd inning, banging out 11 hits in total on the night. Lorenzo “She Said She” Cedrola hot with another 2-hit night, too. Connor “Bicep” Curlis did most of the heavy lifting on the mound with a solid 6 IP of 3 ER ball, fanning 6 while scattering 5 hits and a lone walk.
The Dragons moved to 5 games over the .500 mark with a tip o the TinCaps, doing so with in impressive 4-run Bottom of the 9th to walk it off. Reniel Ozuna picked up the walk-off double to score both Michael Siani and Jonathan “Dafoes” Willems, with Siani having singled and swiped his 10th bag of the year earlier in the inning. Juan Martinez chipped in with a dinger earlier in the game, while Eduardo “Re Mi Fa” Salazar struck out in impressive 10 Caps on the night in his 5 IP, 2 ER outing as the starter.
Elements conspired to shorten the evenings of the these fine fellows on Tuesday, and did so after both clubs combined for a handful of runs in the 1st inning alone. Michael Triana doubled and scored, Garrett Wolforth bonked him in, and Austin “Fox in the” Hendrick was in the lineup healthy and hitting 2nd, which is cool. Tanner “BT” Cooper was the pitcher on the bump for Daytona on the evening, lasting 3.1 IP with 2 ER and 4 K before lightning pressed pause on play.
