Ryan Hanigan went 1-2 with a 2-run homer. He scored a run and walked twice. He accounted for 50% of the Bats hits.
Matt Belisle picked up the loss by going 6 innings, allowing 4 runs (2 earned) on 7 hits, 2 walks, while striking out 7. Todd Coffey pitched an inning, allowing 2 hits.
I’ll be at this series next weekend when it comes to Tennessee and I can’t wait. Drew Anderson, Luis Bolivar, and Enrique Cruz each had 2 hits in the loss. Adam Rosales only had 1 hit and made it a solo homerun.
Sam Lecure got the start and went 6 innings, allowing 2 runs on 6 hits while striking out 7. Pedro Viola pitched 1 inning, striking out 2. Viola has allowed just 1 run in 9.2 innings pitched in AA.
Cody Strait and Chris Valaika each had 2 hits in 4 at-bats. Chris added a run scored and an rbi on the night.
There wasn’t anything on the pitching side worth a positive mention. But the strangest line was Sean Watson who pitched 2 innings, allowing 3 runs on 0 hits, 4 walks, and striking out 2.
Justin Turner went 4-5 and bumped his numbers up to .305/.368/.443. Drew Stubbs went 1-3 with a 2-run homer.
Travis Webb improved to 7-5 on the season by pitching 5 innings, scattering 3 hits and 1 run. He walked 1 and struck out 3.
The Mustangs scored 6 runs in the 5th inning and took a lead midway through the game. Unfortunately, the bullpen surrendered 2 runs in the 9th inning for the loss. Brandon Menchacha went 2-3 with a run scored and an rbi. Todd Frazier had a triple and an rbi and Justin Reed had a double, run scored, and an rbi.
It was a rough night for all 4 Billings pitchers last night. It was especially disappointing for Adam Pointer who gave up the 2 runs in the 9th on a hit and a walk.
The GCL Reds versus the GCL Pirates was postponed.
