Minor League Player of the Day: Jon Moscot delivered on multiple fronts last night. First, he tossed 7 shutout innings, scattering four hits, walking one and striking out five. He helped himself at the plate with a 1-for-2 night. The hit was a triple, and he scored one of the team’s two runs.
Chad Reineke allowed 4 runs, 8 hits, 3 walks and struck out 2 over 5 innings. Jose Arredondo faced 7 batters: six of them reached base and four of those scored.
Billy Hamilton and Denis Phipps had 6 of the Bats 8 hits. Hamilton was 3-for-5, all singles, with his 67th stolen base. Phipps was 3-for-4 with a solo homerun in the 4th inning.
Jon Moscot allowed just 4 hits, a walk and struck out 5 over 7 shutout innings. Moscot also hit a triple and scored a run. Lee Hyde and Trevor Bell each pitched a scoreless inning in relief.
Devin Lohman (2-for-4, R, RBI) and Mike Costanzo (2-for-3, BB) accounted for half of the Pensacola hits.
Bakersfield 9 – Stockton 5
Fabian Williamson pitched 4.1 scoreless innings. He gave up 3 hits, issued 3 free passes, and struck out 9. Kyle McMyne followed with 1.2 perfect innings, striking out 3 of the 5 batters he faced.
The first seven batters in the lineup had all 14 Blaze hits. Junior Arias, Juan Duran, and Kyle Waldrop each had two hits and a homerun. Juan Silverio was 3-for-5 with a run scored.
Dayton 3 – Lake County 2
Sal Romano allowed just 1 run on 7 hits and a walk while striking out 3 over 6 innings.
Jesse Winker hit his 16th homerun of the season, a 3-run bomb with Sammy Diaz and Phil Ervin aboard, in the bottom of the 8th inning. Joe Hudson (2-for-3, 2B, BB) was the only Dragon to have more than one hit.
Alejandro Chacin pitched a perfect 9th inning for the save.
Great Falls 2 – Billings
Junior Morillo allowed both runs to score on 5 hits and 3 walks over 5 innings. Layne Somsen pitched 3 scoreless relief innings. Nick Fleece pitched a perfect 9th inning.
Ronald Bueno (2-for-3, 3B, R) scored the only Mustang run on a sacrifice fly.
Aristides Aquino (2-for-4) had two of the Reds five hits.
Manuel Aybar allowed just 1 run, 3 hits, 3 walks, and struck out 4 over 5 innings. Sebastian Elizalde made his Reds organization debut as a reliever last night. In two-thirds of an inning, he gave up a hit, allowing an inherited runner to score, and struck out two.
Elizalde is listed as a 21-year-old outfielder signed from the Mexican League. I’m not sure if the Reds see him as a pitcher, or if last night was an emergency appearance type of thing. If you can read Spanish, there is this article from May 10th describing his signing. My Spanish is a little rusty, so if it mentions anything about what position he’ll play, I don’t see it.
