Highlights

WIll Benson (LF. Columbus): 3-5, 2R, HR RBI, SB  – Benson hit his fourth homer of the year to lead off the game for Columbus and got ihs OPS over .800 for the first time in 2022.

Oscar Gonzalez (RF, Columbus): 2-5, HR, 2R, 3 RBI – After the Clippers three run first inning, they scored four in the second, three on Gonzalez’s nine homer of the year.

David Fry (3B, Columbus): 3-5, 2B, 3 RBI – Fry got another start at third base with Trenton Brooks manning first, and his bat continues to heat up. His OPS is also over .800 for the year after a bit of a slow start as well.

Mitchell Tolman (SS, Columbus): 3-3, 2 2B, 3 RBI – Tolman has been a big surprise with the bat for the Clippers this year. He’s hitting over .300 and a .976 OPS.

Clippers Bullpen: 6.2IP, 12K/4BB, 5H – Adam Scott had a rough start and allowed seven runs in the second inning, but the Clippers bullpen threw 6.2 shutout innings after Columbus had already been up 7-0 and allowed them to come back.

Angel Martinez (SS, Lake County): 2-3, RBI – Martinez drove in the go ahead run on Thursday night for Lake County in a win and his RBI in the ninth inning was another winner for the Captains off the bat of Martinez.

Gavin Williams (SP, Lake County): 5.2IP, 5H, ER, BB, 6K – In Williams’ last start at High-A he wasn’t his most dominant ever but his stuff is so good it has overpowered hitters at this level, another reason he should be in Akron and that should be where he makes his next start.

Jake Fox (CF-3B, Lynchburg): 1-3, HR, 2BB – Fox started in center again and ended up at third later in the game. He also hit his first homer of the year in the eighth to tie the game at 4-4. He also drew two walks, because that’s what he’s been best at this year.

Best of the rest

Micah Pries (1B, Akron): 2-4, 2B, RBI – Pries homered twice this week and doubled and drove in another run in Akron’s win Friday.

Bo Naylor (C, Akron): 1-3, 2B, R, RBI, BB – Naylor’s bat has started to come around here in late April and early May, much improved over 2021. Still plenty of time for him.

Tim Herrin (RP, Akron): 3IP, 3H, 7K – Herrin faced 12 batters and struck out seven of them and just allowed three hits in extended duty after just an average start by Hunter Gaddis and a short pitching staff for Akron.

Nic Enright (RP, Akron): IP, 2K – A save and perfect inning for the Akron closer.

Petey Halpin (CF, Lake County): 1-2, 2 BB, R – Halpin hasn’t hit much this year as he gets his bearings in High-A as a teenager but he had a hit and two walks, so getting on three times is a good sign for the young outfielder

Aaron Bracho (2B, Lake County): 1-4, HR, RBI – Bracho’s first homer of the season helped Lake County take the lead in the fourth inning on Friday. 

Dayan Frias (DH, Lynchburg): 1-4, BB, R, SB – Frias has allowed down after a hot start but he got on base twice in this one as the Hillcats leadoff man.

Jack Leftwich (Piggyback SP, Lynchburg): 4IP, 2H, 2ER, 2BB, 8K – Leftwich came in behind Miller, who also allowed two runs, but Leftwich was dominant, fanning eight.

David Sharpe (RP, Lynchburg): 2IP, 2K – Sharpe has a 1.17 ERA this year and is somehow 3-2, because bullpen wins and losses are weird.
