John Rodriguez (Lynchburg, RF): 3/4, R, 2 RBI, 2B – Rodriguez first reached in the second when he was safe on an error, his only official out of the game. He then doubled in the third to bring home Yainer Diaz and give the Hillcats a 3-1 lead. He knocked in another in the fifth when he singled home Jhonkensy Noel, but was caught trying to steal second to end the inning. He then singled in the seventh and scored on an Alexfri Planez single.

Logan Allen (Columbus, SP): 5 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 4 K – The elder Logan Allen was given a rough start as Nolan Jones committed an error to start the game, but Allen induced a double play (turned by Allen) to keep the first scoreless. He allowed a double, two walks and a wild pitch in the second, but again was saved by a double play, this time starting it himself with an out at home. He continued to skirt around trouble with a double and single allowed in the third, then another double in the fourth and a double with two walks in the fifth, each time escaping unscathed.

Best of the rest

Bryan Lavastida (Lake County, C): 2/3, 3 RBI – Lavastida first reached with a single in the fourth, then with another in the sixth. The second hit knocked in two and he moved up on an error. He added his third RBI of the game in the 8th with a sac fly.

Xzavion Curry (Lake County, SP): 5 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 K – Curry continued his strong rookie season with Lake County last night, although it wasn’t quite as dominant as he has been in the past. He allowed a single in the first, then loaded the bases in the second with a double, walk and HBP. His first and only run scored in the third after a triple and sac fly, after which he allowed a double. He gave up another single in the fourth and one more in the fifth, but didn’t allow another run.

Jhonkensy Noel (Lynchburg, 3B): 2/4, R, 2 RBI, 2B – Noel singled in his first at bat, but was thrown out at home as part of a double play. Noel then doubled in the fifth to bring home Petey Halpin and Angel Martinez, then scored his lone run of the game on Rodriguez’s single.

Alexfri Planez (Lynchburg, LF): 2/4, 2 R, RBI, 2B, SB – Planez first reached in the sixth when he doubled to lead off the inning, stole third and scored on a single from Yordys Valdes. He then singled in the seventh to score Rodriguez and scored himself on an Andres Melendez single.

Hugo Villalobos (Lynchburg, RP): 4 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 BB – Villalobos entered the game in the sixth with a 6-2 lead and was solid in relief to finish the game. He had a perfect first inning, then allowed two singles and a walk to load the bases in the seventh, but limited the damage to a single run allowed. He then threw a perfect eighth and allowed a single in the ninth, but used a double play to finish the game without further scoring.

Alex Call (Columbus, CF): 2/4, 3 R, 2B, BB – Call doubled to lead off the game, then scored on a Wilson Ramos single for the first run of the game. He then singled in the third, advanced on an Andres Gimenez single and scored on a ground out. He added a walk in the ninth to reach a third time. He scored this time on another Gimenez single.

Wilson Ramos (Columbus, C): 3/5, 2 RBI, 2 2B – Ramos singled home the Clippers first run of the game in the first, then doubled in the fifth. He was quiet again until the ninth when he hit his second double and knocked in Jordan Luplow to cap a three run inning.

Richie Palacios (Akron, CF): 2/4, HR – Palacios is second in all of AA with 24 doubles, but Akron got all their limited scoring via the home run last night. His contribution came as a too little too late ninth inning solo shot. He first hit was a single in the fourth.
