Eloy Jimenez: 1-for-3, 1 BB, 1 K
Matt Skole: 2-for-4, 0 BB, 0 K
Seby Zavala: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 2 K
Casey Gillaspie: 2-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K
Carson Fulmer: 7 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 11 K **MVP**
Ricardo Pinto: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Uh, did Carson Fulmer just have a good game? He only walked one person and struck out 11. And Casey Gillaspie led the team in hits? Well, this is not the Twilight Zone, Fulmer and Gillaspie just stole the show from Eloy Jiménez ,who hit a single in tonight’s game. Carson went seven strong innings for the quality start, and left with a 56 game score. Obviously, this could just be a one-off, but hopefully this is the start. Casey was able to add a couple of hits to his season, including a double, but there was no offense for the Knights. The team had 10 hits in the game, and only one run to show for it. I guess baserunning is hard.
Joel Booker: 4-for-5, 2 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 1 SB
Luis Basabe: 1-for-5, 1 R, 0 BB, 1 K
Zack Collins: 0-for-3, 2 BB, 3 K
Jameson Fisher: 0-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Alex Call: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 2 K
Matt Rose: 2-for-4, 2 HR, 0 BB, 1 K **MVP**
Matt Tomshaw: 5 IP, 8 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 3 K
Another win for the White Sox system today. Birmingham won this game in large part because of Matt Rose. Rose had been in a massive slump (even that is an understatement) to end the first half after he returned from injury. However, he may be on the right track now, with two home runs in today’s game. His average is at a measly .195, but he still has the power profile to be considered a fringe prospect. Meanwhile, recent call-up Joel Booker had a field day in his AA debut, going 4-for-5 with a stolen base. Not a bad first game for the High-A All-Star!
Luis Robert: 1-for-3, 1 R, 1 RBI, 0 BB, 1 K, 1 SB
Laz Rivera: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K
Blake Rutherford: 1-for-4, 1 HR, 0 BB, 0 K
Micker Adolfo: 2-for-4, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 1 K
Gavin Sheets: 1-for-4, 0 BB, 2 K
Tanner Banks: 7 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K **MVP**
The Dash are right where they left off before the All-Star break, in first place, and with new players! Luis Robert added a hit in his Single-A debut, but Laz Rivera had a forgettable one with an 0-fer performance. Blake Rutherford and Micker Adolfo brought the wood today when they went back-to-back in the fourth inning. However, a brilliant performance by Tanner Banks stole the show. He went seven strong innings and only allowed two earned runs. Banks is having a terrific season in Winston-Salem, with a 2.73 ERA. But he is 26, and far from a prospect. Nevertheless, the Dash are back in first to start the second half.
Kannapolis gets back in the win column in a big way! pic.twitter.com/wnF5wnyoYI— Kannapolis Intimidators (@Intimidators) June 22, 2018
Luis Curbelo: 2-for-5, 1 R, 2 RBI 0 BB, 0 K
Craig Dedelow: 1-for-5, 1 R, 0 BB, 0 K
Tate Blackman: 1-for-4, 2 R, 1 RBI 1 BB, 2 K
Justin Yurchak: 1-for-3, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
John Parke: 7 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K **MVP**
Not many promotions here in Kannapolis, but maybe it did not need any, as the I’s won 9-0 to open up another playoff run. Luis Curbelo had a successful day at the plate, with a team-high two hits. He also added two RBI. All but two players reached base for the Intimidators, as they collected nine hits and four walks. But really, the offense was not needed today with John Parke on the mound. Parke seemed to want to stick it to the Sox organization for not promoting him, tossing seven shutout innings and only allowing four hits. He now has a 2.82 ERA on the season.
Ian Dawkins: 0-for-5, 0 BB, 1 K
Lenyn Sosa: 1-for-4, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 0 K
Romy Gonzalez: 0-for-3, 1 BB, 0 K
Logan Sowers: 2-for-2, 1 HR, 2 BB, 0 K, 1 SB **MVP**
Gunnar Troutwine: 0-for-2, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Jimmy Galusky: 2-for-4, 1 R, 0 BB, 1 K
Chris Comito: 5 IP, 9 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
Lane Ramsey: 1 2⁄3 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Great Falls had an early 1-0, lead but the defense (two errors) and Chris Comito gave the game away with five runs in the fourth and fifth. Lane Ramsey, in the seventh inning, gave up three more runs, putting the Voyagers away for the night. Though the pitching failed the team, there was not much offense to go around. The Voyagers only had five hits, and Logan Sowers accounted for two of them. He was able to reach base on a single, two walks and added a home run once the game was out of hand. Lenyn Sosa provided the first big hit, with a seventh inning solo homer. He is hitting .381 in the short sample so far.
Jose Rodriguez: 3-for-4, 1 R, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 0 K **MVP**
Jefferson Mendoza: 1-for-3, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K
Samil Polanco: 3-for-4, 2 R, 1 RBI, 0 BB, 0 K
Dionicio Jimenez: 4 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K
Francisco Benitez: 3 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
A win! The DSL Sox are now 3-13. As a team, the Sox had 12 hits to only seven strikeouts. Jose Rodriguez and Samil Polanco led the team with three hits each, and two extra-base hits. Rodriguez is now slashing .355/.365/.500 in 15 games. Dionicio had his best outing of the year by far, with only two earned runs in four innings. Francisco Benitez continues to roll this season: The 17 year-old has a 1.38 ERA in 13 innings pitched, with a .119 batting average against.
