Jhonkensy Noel (Lake County, 3B): 3-4, 2 R, 1 2B, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 1 K – Every time you think you’ve seen Noel’s ceiling, he does something that leaves you speechless. Last night was one of those somethings. Jhonkensy almost single-handedly won this crucial playoff race game for the Captains (who remain one game back of the seemingly unstoppable Great Lakes Loons with eleven to play). Through his first 16 games at the level, Noel’s High-A OPS is still north of 1.000 (1,042), thanks in large part to his eight extra-base hits (including six home runs) out of 21 total hits, good for a .318 ISO – nearly equal to his ,333 AVG!
BEST OF THE REST
Steven Kwan (Columbus, CF): 1-4, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 E – While he has cooled off from the five-game multi-hit streak that marked the beginning of his Triple-A career, Kwan’s hitting streak remains intact at seven games and he is slashing a stratospheric .538/.600/.885 with five extra-base hits (three doubles, two home runs) and seven RBI.
Ernie Clement (Columbus, 3B): 3-5, 1 2B, 2 K, 1 CS, Picked Off 1 time – Clement, fresh off the IL and back in Triple-A, had a stellar night at the plate and, well, whatever is the opposite of a stellar night is on the basepaths.
Will Brennan (Akron, DH): 3-5, 1 R, 1 K – Brennan extended his on-base streak to nine games with his second three-hit game as a RubberDuck.
Brayan Rocchio (Akron, SS): 2-4, 2 R, 1 3B, 1 HBP – Rocchio has 25 RBI in 33 Double-A games after he broke a three-game 2-for-12 mini-slump with his fourth multi-hit game in his last seven.
George Valera (Akron, LF): 1-5, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 1 K – Valera’s two-run double in the second nearly got him to an RBI-per-game pace at the Double-A level (eleven RBI in twelve games).
Jonathan Engelmann (Akron, RF): 2-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K – Hopefully, this is the beginning of Engelmann finding some consistency at the Double-A level.
Logan T. Allen (Akron, SP): ND, 4.2 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 HBP – Allen has combined for 10.2 scoreless frames in his last two starts.

Kevin Coulter (Lake County, SP): W (8-4), 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R (unearned), 1 K, 2 HBP – The Lake County pitching piggyback made the most of Noel’s prodigious run support, starting with Coulter’s second straight start without an earned run.
Zach Draper (Lake County, RP): S (1), 4 IP, 2 H, 2 BB, 2 K, 2 HBP – Draper followed on the mound for a four-inning save, the first (of any kind, not just the four-inning variety) of his professional career.
Gabriel Rodriguez (Lynchburg, 3B): 3-4, 1 R – Rodriuiez batted third for the Hillcats on Tuesday night and provided nearly half their hits and literally half their scoring..
Alexfri Planez (Lynchburg, RF): 3-4, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K – Planez followed in the cleanup spot with another three hits, including an eighth-inning double for the Hillcats’ lone RBI of the game (the other run scored on a balk in the sixth).
Jake Fox (ACL, 3B): 2-3, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 SB – Fox has at least one hit in seven of his eight professional games and drove in a run on a sac fly in the other.
Mike Amditis (ACL, starting C): 1-2, 1 R – Amditis continued his rehab assignment with his fourth ACL game in six days.
