Charlotte may have lost this game, but there were plenty of positives to take away. Tyler Danish got the start for the Knights and turned in his best AAA start by going seven innings and striking out seven batters to two walks and six hits – only surrendering one earned run in the process. Danish was young for AA, let alone AAA and MLB, so a string of good starts could get the funky right back on track. Sadly, Brad Goldberg lost this game after giving up a three run home run.
On offense the Knights couldn’t get runners in, but there were plenty of multi-hit games. Adam Engel and Carlos Sanchez both went 2-5, Sanchez scoring a run. Jason Coats was 3-4 with wak and RBI. Jason Bourgeois was 2-4 with the other RBI,
Tyler Barnette got the start for the Barons was subsequently roughed up – 5 runs in six innings on nine hits and one walk. Zack Burdi relieved Barnette and threw two scoreless innings where he struck out two batters.
Zach Thompson got the start from the Dash and had a disappointing outing as he gave up three walks, five hits and six runs in four innings, four of those runs off of two home runs. Thompson also only struck out three batters. Taylore Cherry went two innings in relief and struck out two batters.
In the second game of the day, the Dash couldn’t muster more offense. Nick Basto was the lone bright spot on offense – driving in the only run after going 2-3.
Alex Call continues to be a pleasant surprise as the 3rd rounder went 2-4 today with two doubles and a walk, scoring a run along the way. Grant Massey was 4-4 with two RBIs. Joan Cruz had good day at the plate, going 2-5 with an RBI of his own. Sadly, they couldn’t overcome bad pitching.
Jimmy Lambert only went three innings of one-run ball before giving way to Michael Horejsei, who surrendered two runs in 1.2 innings. Tanner Mendonca got a hold with three strikeouts in his 1.1 innings of work. But Ian Hamilton lost the game, blowing the save to the tune of six hits and five earned runs.
Jameson Fisher and Jackson Glines both had stellar dates at the plate. Glines was was 3-4 on the night with two runs scored, a double and a triple. Fisher was 3-5 with two RBIs of his own and Sam Dexter even chipped in a homer for his 2-4 day.
Alec Hanson got the start for the Voyagers and once again looked stellar – striking out six batters on only 72 pitches, while giving up three runs.. But most importantly, Hanson surrendered no walks – meaning the Sox might not have been bluffing when they said they saw an easy fix for the former MLB draft favorite to go number one. Adam Panayotovich got the loss after surrendering four runs in his 2.1 innings of work. Brandon Magallones threw a perfect eighth and stuck out two.
Jacob Cooper led the offense for the AZL team, going 3-4 with two doubles and an RBI, the only RBI a Sox batter picked up. Zach Remillard went 2-4 with a double and was the only other AZL batter with multiple hits after Cooper.
On the mound, Edinxon Arias got the ill-fated start and gave up seven runs, only two earned, in 4.2 innings. Salvador Villarreal, Brad Haymes and Sean Renzi combined throw 3.1 scoreless innings to end the game.
