HIGHLIGHTS

Jake Fox (Lynchburg – Game 1, SS): 1-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K – Fox’s three-run homer capped off a five-run second that set the tone for the Hillcats’ offensive outburst in the opener of last evening’s doubleheader and extended his on-base streak to 14 games.

Jake Fox (Lynchburg – Game 2): 0-2, 2 BB, 2 K – Fox went hitless but extended the aforementioned on-base streak to 15 games as well as his walk streak to six.

Will Bartlett (Lynchburg – Game 1, starting 1B): 2-3, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 HBP, 1 E – Any rust that Bartlett accumulated while on the 7-day IL seems to have been shaken off as he posted this impressive statline in only his third game back.

Will Brennan (Columbus, CF): 3-4, 1 R, 1 2B,1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 SB – Brennan is clearly adjusting to Triple-A pitching very quickly.  He now has a three-game hitting streak with back-to-back multi-hit games – all part of a June is which he is slashing .344/.436/.469 (all at Triple-A).

Junior Sanquintin (Lynchburg – Game 1, starting DH): 2-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI – Sanqunitin’s acclimation to non-complex ball has been likewise speedy as he only needed two rough games before finding his groove and starting an on-base streak that he extended to five games in last night’s opener.

Junior Sanquintin (Lynchburg – Game 2): 1-4, 1 E – He extended said streak to six contests in the nightcap.

REHAB

Aaron Civale (Columbus, SP): ND, 2 IP, 2 H, 2 R (both earned), 1 BB, 3 K, 1 HBP – Not the numbers you would expect from a major leaguer facing Triple-A guys, but it’s only his first rehab start and, really, the important thing is that he was able to pitch two full innings without having to leave the game.

BEST OF THE REST

Mitchell Tolman (Columbus, SS): 2-5, 1 RBI, 2 SB – Tolman doubled his season stolen base total as part of this all-around solid offensive performance.

Micah Pries (Akron ,DH): 2-3, 2 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 HBP – Pries drove in his 22nd run of the season in the lone noteworthy offensive performance of the night by a RubberDuck (rest of the lineup combined to go 1-for-28 with a run scored, a walk [both of those by CF George Valera] and 14 strikeouts).

Logan Allen (Akron, SP): ND, 6 IP, 3 H, 3 R (all earned), 3 BB, 9 K, 2 HR allowed – Not Allen’s best outing as he got taken deep twice, but he struck out nine more batters to bring his season total to 82, compared to only 20 walks.

Angel Martinez (Lake County, SS): 1-4 , 2B, 1 BB – Martinez extended his streak of games with a productive plate appearance to eight.

Raynel Delgado (Lake County, 3B): 1-3, 1 R, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 SB – Delgado also has a lengthy streak of contributing to the team’s offensive performance (nine games) as he led the way for the Eastlake nine at the plate with a two-run triple and his fifth stolen base of the season.

Cade Smith (Lake County, RP): 1 IP, perfect, 3 K – Smith struck out the side in order in the eighth to finish an otherwise unimpressive night on the mound for the Captains.

Isaiah Greene (Lynchburg – Game 1, RF): 0-1, 2 R, 3 BB, 1 K, 1 SB, 1 E – Greene was highly productive in Game 1 despite going hitless.

Josh Wolf (Lynchburg – Game 1, SP): ND, 1 H, 1 R (unearned), 2 BB, 4 K, 2 WP – A short, but solid, return from the IL for Wolf in his season debut.

Milan Tolentino (Lynchburg – Game 2, 2B): 1-4, 1 K – Tolentino ended a three-game hit drought in the nightcap.

Wuilfredo Antunez (ACL, RF): 2-3, 2 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB – Antunez extended his season-opening on-base streak to three games with his fifth walk of the season while picking up his first two official stateside hits.

Angel Genao (ACL, DH): 2-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K – Genao is off to a spectacular stateside start, slashing .500/.571/.750 in his first three ACL games.

Angel Contreras (ACL, 1B): 2-4, 2 R,.1 2B, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K – A stellar stateside debut for Contreras.

Darlin Noboa (ACL, RP): H (1), 2 IP, 1 H, 3 K, 1 WP, 2 BK – Noboa is finally healthy and looked good for the most part in his return to competitive play, although the fact he hadn’t played under the full rulebook in four seasons was evident in his pair of balks.

Moises Molero (DSL Blue, LF): 2-4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 K – Molero, who is off to a hot start to his pro career with six hits in eleven at-bats and a quartet of walks that bring his OBP to .667, hit his first extra-base hit in Thursday’s seven-inning contest.

Gueile Borrome (DSL Blue, 3B): 1-4, 2 RBI, 2 K – Borrome had two of the three Blue RBI in the game (they scored one run each on a passed ball and a wild pitch) to extend his career total to five in eleven at-vats (three games).

Nelson Aranguren (DSL Blue, C): 2-3, 1 R, 1 2B – Aranguren’s first double of the season (and second of his pro career) highlighted this multi-hit performance.

Ronald Pena (DSL Red, LF): 1-1, 1 R, 1 3B, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 CS, Picked Off 1 time – Pena did a great job of getting on base, including hitting a triple.  Not so much in terms of advancing on the basepaths.
