Best of the Rest

Oscar Gonzalez (DH, Columbus): 3/4, R – Gonzalez singled to lead off the second, but was stranded at first. He did so again in the fourth and again was stranded. He singled again in the sixth and scored this time thanks to Johnson’s homer.
Daniel Johnson (CF, Columbus): 1/4, 3 RBI, HR – Johnson had a fairly slow night until the sixth when his three run home run scored Gonzalez and Josh Naylor and increased the Clipper lead to five.
Reid Johnston (RP, Lynchburg): 3 IP, 0 R, H, 3 K – Johnston made his 2022 debut in the fifth with the Hillcats down 3-1. He had two perfect innings with three strike outs, then allowed a single and made a throwing error in the seventh before ending his outing without any further damage.
