White Sox Minor League Update: July 6, 2018

Zack Collins and Luis Gonzalez brought the power

Bombs Away: Zack Collins crushed a three-run homer, and that was all Dylan Cease and the Barons needed.
Birmingham Barons

Gwinnett Stripers 12, Charlotte Knights 0

Jose Rondon: 1-for-3, 1 BB, 2 K

Matt Skole: 0-for-2, 1 BB, 0 K

Seby Zavala: 1-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K

Carson Fulmer: 5 IP, 10 H, 5 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Aaron Bummer: 1 13 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K **MVP**

Carson Fulmer worked closer to the plate, but left too many pitches in the middle. He was crushed, with 10 hits in only five innings to put the game out of reach for the Knights. Charlotte was able to record eight hits, but no runs came from them. Seby Zavala was able to add one, but but his average is still underwhelming, at .208. Aaron Bummer recorded four straight outs; he should be back on the South Side soon.

Birmingham Barons 3, Chattanooga Lookouts 1

Joel Booker: 2-for-5, 1 R, 0 BB, 1 K

Luis Basabe: 1-for-4, 1 R, 0 BB, 2 K

Nicky Delmonico: 0-for-2, 0 BB, 2 K

Jameson Fisher: 1-for-2, 0 BB, 1 K

Zack Collins: 1-for-4, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 0 BB, 2 K **MVP**

Dylan Cease: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 9 K

Dylan Cease has had quite the start to his AA stint. After his 69 game score, he has a 3.24 ERA with the Barons, and a much improved last two starts. He threw 111 pitches in five innings, so it was a current-day quality start. On the offensive side, Zack Collins provided the offense. He crushed a three-run homer in the first inning, and that was enough to win the game. After his hot start, Joel Booker’s batting average has fallen off the ledge, as it sits at .283. Nicky Delmonico did not look good, striking out twice in his rehab start, and was pulled after those two at-bats.

Winston-Salem Dash 4, Down East Wood Ducks 2

Luis González: 1-for-3, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 0 K **MVP**

Laz Rivera: 0-for-4, 1 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 1 SB

Blake Rutherford: 1-for-3, 1 R, 1 BB, 0 K

Gavin Sheets: 1-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K

Micker Adolfo: 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 0 BB, 1 K

Tanner Banks: 8 IP, 9 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 K

The Dash are back in the win column, and it was never in doubt. Tanner Banks allowed a first-inning run, but Luis Gonzalez tied the game in the next half-inning. After the first, Banks did not allow another run till the eighth and finished with a 61 game score. In the sixth inning, Micker Adolfo kept his run production going, driving in Laz Rivera to take the lead. Ti’Quan Forbes and Gonzalez tacked on two more insurance runs.

Kannapolis Intimidators

Missoula Osprey 6, Great Falls Voyagers 5

Ian Dawkins: 0-for-5, 0 BB, 1 K

Lenyn Sosa: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 2 K

Corey Zangari: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 0 K

Romy Gonzalez: 2-for-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 0 BB, 2 K

Ramon Beltre: 3-for-4, 1 R, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 0 K **MVP**

Chris Comito: 6 IP, 8 H, 5 ER, 1 BB, 4 K

Nick Johnson: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

This was a back-and-forth game. Chris Comito was steady until the sixth inning, where four runs crossed the plate, and the Voyagers could not make another comeback. Romy Gonzalez and Ramon Beltre combined for half of the Voyagers hits and almost all of the team’s scoring. Beltre had a slow start to his season, but his batting average has risen all the way to .293.

DSL Reds 6, DSL White Sox 5

Jose Rodriguez: 3-for-5, 1 R, 0 BB, 0 K **MVP**

Jefferson Mendoza: 1-for-3, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 0 KK

Yordi Rosario: 4 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4

Another disappointing loss for the DSL White Sox, as they had a five-run lead after six innings. Yordi Rosario had a productive four-inning shutout outing that lowered his ERA to 3.29 on the season. However, Edgar Navarro allowed five runs, three were tabbed as earned. Meanwhile, after a couple-week slump, Jose Rodriguez had a three-hit game to get his average back up to .286.
