Hunter Greene “Day” got the start and allowed 4 runs on 4 hits with a walk and 4 strikeouts over 2.2 innings. He was ejected from the game in the bottom of the third. More on that below. The bullpen did their damndest to keep them in the game but the offense couldn’t battle back. Cionel “Sanders” Perez struck out all 3 batters he faced. Alfredo “Sauce” Rodriguez went 2 for 4 on the night and Jan “Levinson-Gould” Hernandez smacked a pinch-hit 2-run dong. Here’s some more details on the Greene ejection:
Some more info here: Greene had just given up his 3rd home run of the game. The next batter, who homered earlier in the game, had a 102 MPH fastball go behind him (waist high).— Doug Gray (@dougdirt24) August 17, 2021
