High-A: Lake County Captains @ Great Lakes Loons PPD (Make-Up 4/30)
Single-A: Lynchburg Hillcats 4, Salem Red Sox 3
Single-A: Salem Red Sox 8, Lynchburg Hillcats 0 (Make-Up of 4/26)
Logan Allen (SP, Akron): 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 6 K – In the top pitching performance of the night, Allen allowed a single between two strike outs in the first, then walked a batter and allowed a single in the second before using a pick-off and a K to end the threat. In the third and fourth he allowed individual walks, but otherwise was perfect through the sixth.
Daniel Johnson (LF, Columbus): 2/5, 3 RBI, R, HR – Johnson hit a solo homer in the second that tied the game at one. He then singled home two runs in the fifth to tie the game again. Ultimately, however, the Clippers ended up blowing the game with two runs allowed in the ninth.
Marcos Gonzalez (1B, Akron): 3/3 – Gonzalez singled in the second, but was caught on the bases on the next play. He added a sac bunt in the fourth and singled again in the sixth to advance a runner to third, but the Ducks were unable to score in either inning. His final single came in the eighth following a Will Brennan homer, but none of his action resulted in a run.
Best of the Rest
Brayan Lavastida (C, Columbus): 1/4, HR, BB – Lavastida’s big knock was a solo home run to lead off the fourth inning. He walked in the fifth, leading to another run as he advanced a runner.
Will Brennan (CF, Akron): 1/3, HR, BB – Brennan initially reached with a walk in the second and advanced to second on a sac bunt. He got the Rubberducks on the board for the first time in the eighth with a solo home run, but it wouldn’t be enough as the Ducks lost by one.
Isaiah Greene (LF, Lynchburg): 2/4, 1 R, 1 RBI – After starting the game 0/2, Greene helped the Hillcats to a comeback lead in game one. He singled to lead off the fifth, then scored the first Lynchburg run on a sac fly. After the bases were loaded in the sixth, he hit another single to bring home their second run. The Hillcats would score two more that inning to take the lead and win 4-3. This gave the Hillcats a five game winning streak they lost later in the day.
Brauny Munoz (RP, Lynchburg): 1.2 IP, 1 H, 4 K, 0 R, 0 BB – Munoz came into the game already down eight with one on and one out in the fifth. While he allowed a single, he struck out the next batter to end the inning, then all three batters faced in the sixth.
