The story of this game was that Ivan Nova left after allowing three hits on one run in 1.1 innings after rolling his ankle fielding a ground ball. Apparently, he’s fine, but it is his push off foot, so they should be cautious. He didn’t have any command anyway so whatever. George Kontos then came on and tossed 2.2 scoreless innings followed by Greg Smith who gave the game away yielding four runs in two innings. Kevin Whelan also got into the game and gave up a run in two innings, but did strike out three. Offensively, Mike Lamb went 2 for 4 with a run driven in and Kevin Russo, Jorge Vazquez, Jordan Parraz, and Austin Krum each had hits, Russo also drew a walk and Krum scored a run.
Corban Joseph had a big night going 2 for 4 with a triple, two runs scored, two driven in, and a walk. along with Addison Maruszak who added two hits, a ribbie, and a run scored. Rob Lyerly, Melky Mesa, and Zoilo Almonte also each had three hits, Lyerly had two doubles, scored two runs and drove one in, Mesa scored and drove in a run, and Zoilo doubled, scored, and drove in two. Austin Romine and Ray Kruml each had a hit and scored also. Shaeffer Hall was on the mound and pitched great allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six and getting ten grounders in eight innings. Pat Venditte struck out two in the ninth.
Rafael Soriano allowed two runs (one on a homer) on two hits and one strikeout. We can’t go nuts, it’s the first time he’s pitched in a game in about two months. Graham Stoneburner would later throw 5.2 innings and allowed six runs on eight hits. eric Chavez went 0 for 3 with a walk and DH’d the entire game. Abe Almonte, Kyle Roller, and JR Murphy each had hits, but that was it.
The Riverdogs had a scheduled day off.
Cito Culver and Zach Wilson each notched hits, Culver also walked and Tyler Austin and Ben Gamel each went 2 for 3, Austin scored a run and Gamel drove in two. Mason Williams and Angelo Gumbs each went hitless, unfortunately. On the bump, Bryan Mitchell struck out five in 4.2 innings, but was wild as he hit a batter, threw two wild pitches, and issued two walks.
Cito Culver went 2 for 3 with a double, a triple, two runs scored, one driven in, and two walks. Reymond Nunez, Shane Brown, Ali Castillo, and Nick McCoy each had two hits as well, Nunez drove in two. Angelo Gumbs also went 1 for 5 with two ribbies and a run scored. Matt Tracy got the start in this one and was horrendous allowing five runs on eight hits in two innings. But the bullpen was great as usual as the trio of Brett Gerritse, Phil Wetherell, and Fred Lewis combined to give up only one run in six innings.
Claudio Custodio, Dante Bichette Jr., and Yeicock Calderon and each had two hits, Custodio doubled, scored two runs, walked, and stole a base, Bichette doubled, and drove in two, and Calderon doubled, tripled, scored a run and drove in two.
