- Brett Gardner went 3 for 4 with a triple, providing just about all of Scranton’s offense. IPK allowed a run on 5 hits & a walk in 6 IP, with 5 K. JB Cox, Phil Coke & Scott Strickland provided 4 innings of shutout relief.
- Ajax uninspiringly went 2 for 4, while Kevin Russo chipped in an RBI double. Trenton’s offense was shut down by one of the best pitching prospects in the game (and yet another part of the haul the O’s got for Bedard). None of the pitchers did anything particularly noteworthy.
- Charleston’s game was called after the 6th inning because of rain, but both Austin Romine & Brandon Laird picked up hits. The rest of the lineup was pretty quiet, and Noel Castillo sucked on the mound.
- Staten Island’s offense pounded out 13 runs on 17 hits, led by Dan Brewer & Jack Rye, who each had a pair of doubles. Erik Lovett drove in 4 runs, and everyone in the lineup picked up at least one hit and scored a run. Casey Erickson allowed 1 unearned runs in 5 IP.
Just as a heads up, tomorrow at 2:00 EST I’ll be doing the first ever RAB Chat, so make sure you stop by.
