Only three Sox affiliates played on Monday after Birmingham got rained out and the teams went 1-2 on the day.
The Dash had an unremarkable day as Courtney Hawkins led the way going 1-3 with a walk, strikeout, and RBI. Jacob May and Keon Barnum were hitless. On the upside, Cleuluis Rondon continues to make contact at A+ going 1-4 with a strikeout and while the .239 average may not scream amazing, the lack of strikeouts show that he has room to grow.
In the battle of teams with “Falls” in their name, the Greater version comes out on top. Ethan Gross went 2-4 with a double and 2 RBIs, Chevy Clarke was 1-2 with 2 walks and Zach Fish went 1-3 with a walk. Starter Matt Ball was fantastic, only allowing one run over five frames with six strikeouts.
The DSL White Sox were thumped 7-1. The only hitter worth mentioning is Droherlin Mejia who went 2-4 with a strikeout. Reliever Jhoan Quijada had five strikeouts over five innings, but also five walks.
