Reiver “Lives” Sanmartin put together another good start and is having a really fine season. He gave up only an earned run over six innings (1 H, 2 BB, 6 K). Fulmer, Perez, and Moreta combined to shut the door over the final three innings. Dingers were hit by Mike “Freebody” Freeman, TJ Friedl, and Narciso “Bandit” Crook. Freeman drove in three, walked, and scored twice, Friedl was 2 for 5, and Narciso Crook went 3 for 4 with a walk. Alfredo Rodriguez also went 2 for 4 with a double and two walks.
Graham “Cracker” Ashcraft wasn’t his best but he wasn’t bad. He surrendered two earned, three total, over five innings on six hits, two walks, and six strikeouts. He’s still gutting it out but he’s a guy that I think has had the year wear on him a bit. The bullpen was woof except for Juan “Ford” Pinto who struck out three in two shutout innings. Drew Mount went 3 for 4 with a solo homer, double, and two runs scored, and Pedro “Cough Drop” Cedrola went 2 for 5 with a dinger, two RBI, and two runs scored. Lots of other guys got hits too!
Christian “Feather” Roa took the start and was absolutely fantastic. He went seven innings and allowed only an earned run. He gave up five hits, a walk, and struck out seven. Peguero struck out two in two innings and Vincent “Arthur” Timpanelli struck out two in an inning pitched. James “Live” Free “or Die” went 2 for 4 with a solo dinger.
Thomas Farr started the game in a bullpen affair and pitched three shutout innings. Wes “Craven” Robertson struck out two in an inning to pick up the save. Daniel “Violin” Vellojin went 2 for 4 with a homer, two runs scored, and three RBI, Ashton “Fish” Creal went 2 for 3 with a double, a walk, and two runs scored, and Rece “Melon” Hinds came back from injury and crushed a homer. He’s strong.
