Spiers, McAfee, and Hurtubise have huge nights.
Brandon Larson Honorary Star of the Night
Carson Spiers – 6 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 K – Dayton got themselves in a mighty hole when top prospect Lyon Richardson didn’t have his best stuff. I don’t know who this Spiers guy is but he is the one that did everything he could to keep Dayton in it so they could make their big comeback.
“O” Riley O’Brien was masterful in his start for the Bats last evening outside of the two hits he allowed which were both dingers. O’Brien allowed only those two runs while walking two and striking out eight. Edgar Garcia pitched a scoreless inning of relief, and Shane “Jacob” Carle pitched a clean inning in his role of shutting the door. Dwight “Schrute” Smith Jr. went 3 for with 3 RBI, and Michael “Ponce” De Leon knocked two doubles that drove in four. Brantley “Ding Dong” Bell singled, walked twice, and scored three runs while Aristides “Horseshit” Aquino has turned into a walk machine. One the night he was 1 for 3 with a double, two walks, a RBI, and a run scored. Since he’s returend to AAA he’s walked six times and struck out not once. TJ Friedl went 2 for 4 with a triple.
Matt “Bad” Pidich gave up seven earned runs in 0.2 innings which is not good. However, there were a couple bullpen highlights. Miguel “Feather” Figueroa struck out six in three fantastic innings of relief, and JC “Penny’s” Keys struck out four in 1.2 innings of relief. Jose “Oh Eeeh Oh” Barrero and Chuckie “Charles” Robinson went 2 for 4 with a RBI.
The Dragons got off to a terrible start, down 7-0, when Lyon “Down” Richardson just got rocked to the tune of seven earned over just two innings pitched (5 H, 2 BB, 3 K, 2 HR). However, Carson “Spikey” Spiers came in to pick up his buddy was dominated the Loons. Spiers one hit the Loons over six innings while striking out nine and walking only one. Francis “Piggy” Peguero pick up the save while striking out a batter in the 9th. Quincy “Adams” McAfee went 2 for 5 with a double, a two run dong, and five RBI total. Jacob Hurtubise went 2 for 3 with three runs scored, two walks, and a stolen base. The stolen base was his 18th of the year.
