It was a pretty good game all-around for the Glendale Desert Dogs, and especially the White Sox pitchers.
Johan Dominguez started the game, and threw three shutout innings to set the tone for the 11-2 win. It was not a dominant start with six hits allowed, so the bases were crowded, but none of those runners got home — which, you know, is the point of pitching. McKinley Moore came in for the fifth inning and pitched well. He got four outs, allowed no runs, but did not really strike guys out, which has been a theme of his AFL campaign. Finally, Caleb Freeman got another shutout appearance with a good eighth inning. He now has a 1.29 ERA.
For the hitters, Yoelqui Céspedes did not necessarily do poorly (walked once and scored on that walk), but he didn’t get a hit and saw his average lowered to the Mendoza line. Yolbert Sánchez played as well, and he just keeps getting hits (1-for-3 with a couple of walks). Sánchez has an OPS of more than 1.000 at this point in the season — not too shabby.
