HIGHLIGHTS

Will Bartlett (Lynchburg – Game 1, 1B): 2-3, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 HR,  4 RBI, 1 BB – This would be an impressive statline in a nine-inning game.  In a seven-inning doubleheader contest, it’s stratospheric!  The six total bases and four RBI were both season highs for Bartlett.

Will Bartlett (Lynchburg – Game 2, 1B): 1-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 2 K – Bartlett continued his stellar day at the plate in the nightcap with his second homer of both the day and season.

Milan Tolentino (Lynchburg – Game 1, SS): 3-4, 3 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI – Tolentino continued his stellar season in the opener of Thursday’s doubleheader with his fourth three-hit game of the season as well as his fourth three-run game of the season (second time both have occurred in the same game).

Milan Tolentino (Lynchburg – Game 2, DH): 1-3, 1 K – Tolentino singled in a nightcap which saw him get the game off from fielding duties to extend his hitting streak to seven games  In those games, he is 12-for-22 with three doubles, six walks, eleven runs scored, and two driven in, good for a .545/.643/.682 slash line.

Jorge Burgos (Lynchburg – Game 1, RF): 2-2, 2 R, 1 2B, 3 RBI, 2 BB – After starting the month 0-for-7, Burgos made up for lost at-bats in spades in game one on Thursday with this perfect effort at the plate.

Jorge Burgos (Lynchburg – Game 2, RF): 1-2, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 E – While he wasn’t perfect in the second game, he was close, reaching safely in two of three plate appearances.

REHAB

Yu Chang (Columbus, starting 1B): 0-3, 1 K, 1 E – Chang has followed his Akron pattern of getting a hit in his first rehab appearance with a team and then going hitless in the second during his Columbus stint also.

BEST OF THE REST

Tyler Freeman (Columbus, SS): 1-4, 1 2B, 1 K – Freeman’s first extra-base hit of the season was the only one the Clippers would get in a mercifully short (hour and 56 minutes) shutout.

Bryan Lavastida (Columbus, DH): 2-3 – Lavastida’s second multi-hot game in his last three was the only for the Clippers on Thursday night and represented 40% of the Columbus side’s trips to the basepaths.

Jake Jewell (Columbus, RP): 1 IP, 1 H, 1 K – Jewell’s scoreless outing was his seventh in nine games this season.

Brayan Rocchio (Akron, SS): 2-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 K – Rocchio rebounded from a two-game 0-for-9 mini-slump to resume normal service with this impressive evening at the plate.

Micah Pries (Akron, 1B): 1-4, 2 RBI, 2 K – Pries has seven RBI in 58 at-bats in his first season above Single-A despite hitting below the Mendoza Line (.190).

Tanner Burns (Akron, SP): L (1-1), 3.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R (earned), 2 BB, 5 K – While Burns’ tough-luck loser effort wasn’t as impressive as his last three (only one earned run allowed in 14.2 innings of work while striking out 18), it was nonetheless still a very good outing.

Tim Herrin (Akron, RP): 2.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R (earned), 4 K, 1 HR allowed – Herrin struck out a season-high four batters in his first outing of May.

Kevin Kelly (Akron, RP); 2 IP, 1 H, 3 K – Kelly has allowed only one earned run this season in 14.1 innings, good for a 0.63 ERA.

Richard Paz (Lynchburg – Game 1, C): Paz broke out of an 0-for-5 start to the month of May to add to the Hillcats’ offensive dominance in game 1.

Trey Benton (Lynchburg – Game 1, RP): S (1), 1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 K – Benton remains perfect in two career save opportunities following this scoreless seventh.

Skeiling Rodriguez (Lynchburg – Game 2, LF): 2-3 – Rodriguez’s second two-hit game in his last three provided the only multi-hit effort of the nightcap for the Hillcats.
