Batavia was rained out today and Springfield was the only game tonight in a wild one.
Since it’s a light day, let’s have a comment thread conversation. We all know who my “guy” is that I root for in the system over all others (Arquimedes Nieto). We all know DanUp’s from VEB, but who is yours? This is not a hipster contest, you don’t get points the more obscure the player is. Tell me who and why as we enter Wednesday, the most boring day in sports. Unless you like the ESPYs of course…
On to the one game DFR after the jump!
- Scott McGregor gave up 6 runs on 10 hits in 5.1 innings. It wasn’t pretty.
- Tom Eager and Tyler Norrick together pitched the next 2.2 innings. Eager struck out 2.
- Francisco Samuel got the blown save giving up 3 runs in the 9th to tie the game. Two hits, a walk and a HR will do that. Samuel is finding the treading a bit difficult as he returns from injury.
- Adam Reifer got the last out of the 9th, but allowed the go ahead run in the 10th.
- Matt Carpenter was 4-5 with a double, a walk and a solo HR.
- Steven Hill (2-6 with a HR), Adron Chambers (1-1 with a HR and walk), Jose Garcia (2-6 with a HR) all obviously hit HRs.
- Tommy Pham was 2 phor 4 with a walk.
Also a note: Shane Peterson was playing 1B for Midland.
