Minor League Player of the Day: Lance Janke (Lynchburg): 6 IP, 0 Runs, 3 Hits, 0 Walks, 2 Ks
Travis Wood allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 8 hits and 2 walks in 6.2 innings pitched. Ã‚Â He struck out 7 and fell to 4-6 on the season. Ã‚Â Enerio Del Rosario threw gas on the fire by allowing 3 runs on 4 hits and a walk in 1 inning of relief.
Sean Henry had a solo homerun (his 8th of the season) and a triple in 4 at-bats. Ã‚Â He scored twice and raised his average to .306 on the season. Eric Eymann had 2 doubles and a walk in 4 plate appearances. Ã‚Â He also scored a run and drove in a run.
Matt Fairel fell to 1-3 on the season with Carolina in the loss. Ã‚Â He allowed 5 runs on 7 hits and 3 walks in 5.1 innings pitched. Ã‚Â He struck out 5.
Janke, our POTD, improved to 3-4 on the season with the win. Ã‚Â Bradley Boxberger made his first relief appearance of the season and pitched a scoreless inning, walking 1 and striking out 2. Ã‚Â I assume this was just a workout assignment with the High A All-Star break this week and nothing more as Boxberger is typically a starter.
Trailing 7-0 going to the 9th, the Dragons attempted some late inning heroics charged by Shane Carlson’s homerun. Ã‚Â Carlson went 2-4 with a homerun, 3 RBI, and a run scored. Ã‚Â Didi Gregorius went 3-4 with 2 doubles and a run scored.
Blair Carson pitched a scoreless inning of relief to lower his ERA to 1.82 on the season in 34.2 innings pitched with the Dragons this season.
