Springfield prevails in game one of their second round playoff series behind a phenomenal outing from Carlos Martinez and some timely home runs. Let’s get to the good stuff….
Batavia was the only team scheduled to play a game tonight. That game was postponed. Here is a couple discussion topics in its place.
Only four teams laced upthe cleats last night and it didn’t go well for three of them. Boone Whiting was a tough luck loser despite a great start and John Gast pulled himself together with a great start of his own. Let’s get to the good stuff….
There was a little bit of everything down on the farm last night. There were good pitching performances by Scott Gorgen, Ryan Sherriff and Ben O’Shea. Palm Beach and Batavia were both able to sweep their respective double headers. A major leaguer made a rehab appearance and a top prospect returned to the lineup. Overall the farm went 6-2 on the night. Let’s get to the good stuff…..
Springfield, who has been receiving a nice contribution from Mike O’Neill, was the only farm team to post a win on the night. Stephen Piscotty performed well with the bat and didn’t make any fielding errors. Palm Beach and Batavia were both postponed. Let’s get to the (not so) good stuff….
Johnson City played a doubleheader and split with Bristol. Shelby Miller and Carlos Martinez both turned in excellent starts with Silfredo Garcia crashing the party with a great start of his own for Johnson City. In other news, Xavier Scruggs puts on a power display for Springfield and the Palm Beach game was postponed. Let’s get to the good stuff….
Johnson City made a push for the playoffs by sweeping Bristol in a doubleheader. Batavia also helped their playoff standing by getting a win versus division leading Auburn. The real standout players on the night were all toeing the rubber. Thomas Lee leads those players and pulled off the rare relief appearance in game one of the doubleheader followed by a stellar 7.0 inning start in game two.
It was not a great night down on the farm as the teams posted a 2-3 record overall. Matt Williams, Casey Rasmus and Jeremy Patton all had a nice day at the plate which helped power Quad Cities to a victory. Johnson City posted a win and Ben Freeman had a nice start for Batavia though his bullpen let the victory slip away. Let’s get to the good stuff….
Quad Cities posted a win and Johnson City swept a doubleheader. Brandon Dickson, Sam Gaviglio and Stalyn Lopez performed well on the mound and Oscar Taveras carried a big stick but did not speak softly. Let’s get to the good stuff….
