Richie Palacios (LF): 1-4, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 SB – Palacios continued his strong start to the fall season at the plate by reaching base twice to bring his OPS to 1.098, including a .357 AVG. He also stole his fist base of the fall to go with the twenty (ten each for Columbus and Akron) that he swiped this summer.
Jose Tena (2B): 2-5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI – Tena equaled his hit and RBI output from his two Opening Week games in the second week’s first afternoon.
Michael Amditiis (C): 0-3, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 E – Amditis remains hitless through ten at-bats in three games, but reached via walk for the first time this fall on Monday and scored his second run of the autumnal campaign.
Aaron Pinto (RP): 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R (unearned), 4 K – Pinto improved vastly in his second Fall circuit appearance but still fell victim to Amditis’ throwing miscue on a stolen base attempt (Rafter 2B Wilmer Reyes would’ve been stranded at third after 1B Spencer Torkelson’s inning-ending strikeout if he hadn’t advanced to third on the err- putting him in position to score on 3B Brett Baty’s 4-3 ground out).
Damon Casetta-Stubbs (RP): H (1), 1 IP, 1 H – Casetta-Stubbs remains unscored upon in 2.1 innings in two AFL outings and 3.1 frames in three appearances in official games for the Indians organization (pitched a perfect third for the ACL Indians on September 18 against the Reds and got the individual victory).
