Don't panic White Sox fans, but Eloy Jimenez has come out of the game today. He hurt something on his swing. Maybe a leg muscle. Tough to see. We'll show you on White Sox Post-Game Live.— Chuck Garfien (@ChuckGarfien) July 1, 2018
Eloy Jimenez: 1-for-2, 1 R, 0 BB, 0 K
Seby Zavala: 0-for-2, 2 BB, 1 K
Carson Fulmer: 1 2⁄3 IP, 4 H, 5 ER, 3 BB, 2 K
Tyler Danish: 4 1⁄3 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K **MVP**
Aaron Bummer: 1 2⁄3 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Ian Hamilton: 1 1⁄3 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Another tough outing for Carson Fulmer, as he could not make it out of a five-run second inning. The short outing left Fulmer with a miniscule 17 Game Score. Tyler Danish and the bullpen came on to salvage the game, as the Knights crept back to win. Danish has put together a successful season, with a 3.48 ERA, as he looks to be remembered among the White Sox pitching prospects. Unfortunately, the news of the day is Eloy Jimenez. After his single, he seemed to hurt his leg on a swing, per Chuck Garfien. This is not welcome news, but then, there has not been an official announcement as of yet. Ian Hamilton was able to get the win when he took over for Aaron Bummer. Hamilton has not allowed a run in Charlotte (after Eloy, we had to end on good news).
Joel Booker: 0-for-5, 0 BB, 3 K
Luis Basabe: 0-for-5, 0 BB, 3 K
Zack Collins: 1-for-4, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 K
Alex Call: 2-for-4, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 1 K
Jameson Fisher: 1-for-2, 2 BB, 0 K
Dylan Cease: 7 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K **MVP**
Matt Foster: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K
An extra-inning loss continued the Sox farm system woes in Birmingham. However, Dylan Cease had his best AA start of the season, with a 66 game score. Cease was able to keep runners off the basepaths in this outing, unlike his previous, and his command was much better. His ERA is still more than four, which indicates how bad his earlier outings were, but this is a step in the right direction. Alex Call and Zack Collins provided the bulk of the offense for the Barons. Collins blasted his 10th homer of the season in the sixth inning and Call added two RBIs as well. Matt Foster was on the mound for the Ryan Brett error that led to two unearned runs, but Foster has not found much success in his new home yet.
Luis González: 1-for-4, 1 BB, 0 K
Laz Rivera: 0-for-3, 0 BB, 1 K
Blake Rutherford: 1-for-4, 1 R, 0 BB, 1 K
Micker Adolfo: 0-for-3, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K
Gavin Sheets: 2-for-2, 0 BB, 0 K
Tanner Banks: 7 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K **MVP**
Lincoln Henzman: 1 IP, 2 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 0 K
The Dash were tied all game thanks to starter Tanner Banks. He left in the seventh inning with a 72 game score, and with a 2-1 lead by the eighth. However, converted starter because of innings workload, Lincoln Henzman, has not taken his stint as a reliever in stride. He gave up three runs in the eighth, and Wilmington took the lead and eventually won, 4-3. Luis Gonzalez added another hit to keep his High-A ball batting average over .400. Gavin Sheets also continued his hitting streak as he raises his batting average to .287 on the year. Disturbing news outside the lines, Luis Robert is on the 7-day DL after he aggravated his thumb injury from earlier this season while making a catch at the outfield wall last week.
Due to heavy rain and unplayable field conditions, today's game in Rome has been called. pic.twitter.com/FnUGSfOS2G— Kannapolis Intimidators (@Intimidators) July 1, 2018
Luis Curbelo: 2-for-4, 2 R, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 0 K **MVP**
Craig Dedelow: 1-for-4, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 1 K
Justin Yurchak: 1-for-4, 1 R, 0 BB, 0 K
Jhoan Quijada: 6 IP, 10 H, 6 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
This game, to the I’s dismay, was cut short in the eighth inning due to rain. Jhoan Quijada did not do well in his start, as he let a 5-2 lead get away. Most of the top pitchers have left Kannapolis, which is a good thing for the White Sox, just not the I’s. Meanwhile, Luis Curbelo had a good day at the plate. He had two two doubles, one that drove in two runs in the second inning. Justin Yurchak added a hit, as both Curbelo and Yurchak look to improve on their above-average Junes and help Kannapolis reach the playoffs.
The @gfvoyagers strike! Three-run 3rd for a 3-2 lead going T4. Alfaro walks, Estes doubles, RBI singles by Beltre and Sosa.— Great Falls Voyagers (@gfvoyagers) July 1, 2018
Ramon Belre: 1-for-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 0 BB, 0 K
Lenyn Sosa: 1-for-4, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 0 K
Logan Sowers: 0-for-3, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K
Romy Gonzalez: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K
Jimmy Galusky: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K
Chris Comito: 5 IP, 8 H, 5 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Bennett Sousa: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K **MVP**
Chis Comito failed the Voyagers in this matchup. Great Falls was able to take a 3-2 lead in the third inning, but Comito kept allowing runs from there. Ramon Beltre and Lenyn Sosa provided the third inning scoring, with two singles. However, that was half of the Voyagers hits, as they could not muster any sort of offense outside of the third inning. The Voyagers did threaten to tie the game in the ninth, but fell short after scoring one run. Bennett Sousa has impressed since he was drafted: The LOOGY has not allowed a run so far this season, and should find himself in Kannapolis sooner than later.
