Low-A – Lynchburg Hillcats 2, Carolina Mudcats 4
Will Brennan (Lake County, CF): 2/3, 3 RBI, 2 R, 2 BB, HR, SB – Spoiler Alert: Brennan’s solo homer to lead off this game ended up being the deciding run in Lake County’s 7-6 win. After that solo shot, Brennan came through again in the second with a bases loaded, two run single. He added one extra walk in the ninth, although he was thrown out trying to get to third on George Valera’s single.
Best of the rest
Heath Fillmyer (Columbus, SP): 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 4 K, 0 BB – Fillmyer may be a fill in pitcher for the Clippers, but he’s had a solid July so far through to starts. Last night, he allowed a single and wild pitch in the second, then another single in the third and the fifth, but didn’t allow a run to score. With his six shut out inning, Fillmyer has now thrown 11 scoreless this month with four hits and one walk allowed while striking out 11.
Wilson Ramos (Columbus, DH): 2/3, R – Signed on July 6th, Ramos jumped into the Indians organization as the DH last night and had a hit in his second at bat, singling to start the fifth. While he was out on a double play that time, he started the seventh off with a single as well. This time, he scored on a Ryan Lavarnway double to give the Clippers the lead.
Oscar Gonzalez (Columbus, RF): 2/3, R – Playing in just his second AAA game, Gonzalez singled in the fifth and again in the seventh. His seventh inning hit moved up Ramos and he scored on the Lavarnway double as well to make the Clippers lead 2-0.
Michael Amditis (Lake County, C): 3/3, BB, R – Overall, the Lake County offense was solid, scoring seven runs, but Michael Amditis lead the on base assault. He reached first with a walk in the second, part of three consecutive to start the inning leading to a four run inning. He then singled in the third, moving up Ray Delgado from second to third, after which he scored on a sac fly. He singled again in the fifth, then again in the eighth, although neither resulted in runs.
Gabriel Rodriguez (Lynchburg, 3B): 1/1, 2B, 2 BB – Rodriguez reached three times, first with a single in the second. He walked to reach in the fourth and sixth.
Braunny Munoz (Lynchburg, RP): 3 IP, 1 H, 1 K, 0 BB, 0 R – Munoz entered the game in a rough spot down four in the fifth. He threw a perfect fifth, then allowed a single and struck out one in a scoreless sixth. He was perfect again in his final inning as he gave the Hillcats a chance to come back. While they scored twice in this span, it wasn’t enough for the win.
Akron’s game against Altoona was rained out and has been rescheduled as part of a double header on July 9th, starting at 5 PM.
