louisville

Result: Louisville 4, Toledo 1

Starting Pitcher: Tim Adleman, RHP – 7.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 6 K

Top Hitter: Jesse Winker, LF – 3-for-5, RBI

Other Notable Performers:

Ray Chang, 1B – 1-for-4, 2B

Hernan Iribarren, CF – 2-for-5, RBI, R

Game Notes: In his sixth rehab start, Tim Adleman tossed his best effort over that stretch.

He worked into the eighth inning and worked his way back up to 99 pitches. He allowed just five hits and a run in the contest.

After pitching a perfect first and second, Adleman allowed a run in the third after two singles and a double play that plated one.

He walked the lead off hitters in the fourth and the fifth, but pitched around that. Adleman then worked a perfect sixth, and pitched around a one-out double in the seventh.

Adleman retired the first two in the eighth, but allowed back-to-back singles and was replaced by Kevin Shackelford, who got out of the jam.

Shackelford also worked a scoreless ninth and picked up his fourth save of the season. Since joining Louisville in late June, Shackelford has allowed just one run in 18 innings and opponents are hitting just .209 against him.

Jesse Winker added three more singles and is 5-for-12 in his last three games.

pensacola

Result: Pensacola 4, Mississippi 3

Starting Pitcher: Rookie Davis, RHP – 6.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 4 K

Top Hitter: Alex Blandino, 3B – 2-for-5, HR, R, RBI

Other Notable Performers:

Phillip Ervin, CF – 1-for-4, 2B, R, RBI, BB, SB

Taylor Sparks, PH – 1-for-1, HR, R, RBI

Game Notes: Monday night marked the first time in five starts that Rookie Davis allowed more than two runs in a contest.

That number can be misleading though, as it all came in his last inning of work and Davis was just three over the minimum through six innings.

Davis allowed just single base runners in the first and second inning before tossing a perfect third inning. He had induced five ground outs in those first three frames.

He also threw two more perfect innings in the fourth and fifth innings, before allowing a one-out walk in the sixth. However, he got two strikeouts in the inning and still got out scoreless.

The seventh inning was the trouble for Davis, as he allowed a lead off single and a one-out, two-run home run. He then allowed a double and the bullpen allowed that runner to score.

Alex Blandino extended his current six-game hit streak with two hits and a home run. He has now hitting .333 over his last 10 games. He has also homered twice in his last four games.

Phillip Ervin picked up a double and stole his 30th and 31st bases of the season. This marks the third straight season that Ervin has swiped at least 30 bases.

daytona

Result: Daytona 2, Bradenton 1

Starting Pitcher: Tejay Antone, RHP – 8 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K

Top Hitter: Ronald Bueno, 3B – 2-for-4, 2 2B, R

Other Notable Performers:

Gavin LaValley, 1B – 1-for-4

Angelo Gumbs, LF – 1-for-3, RBI, BB

Game Notes: Quietly, Tejay Antone has been on quite a tear, which continued into Monday night’s action.

Antone tossed eight strong innings, and has gone at least six in five of his last six starts. This included four the he has worked into the seventh inning at least, including Monday.

It got off to a mildly rocky start for Antone, as he allowed a walk and a single to start the game. However, he got a double play to end that threat and then struck out the side in the second.

He allowed leadoff hits in the third and fourth, but got out of it with just one run crossing the plate. He tossed two more perfect innings in the fifth and sixth, and allowed just three more base runners the rest of the way.

Ronald Bueno added two hits for his fourth multi-hit game in his last six games. Over that span, he is hitting .474.

Angelo Gumbs added another knock and is hitting .389 over his last 10 games.

dayton

Result: Bowling Green 11, Dayton 6

Starting Pitcher: Antonio Santillan, RHP – 3.1 IP, 4 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 5 BB, 2 K

Top Hitter: James Vasquez, DH – 2-for-4, HR, R, 2 RBI, BB

Other Notable Performers:

Daniel Sweet, LF – 2-for-4, 2 R, 2 RBI, BB

Zack Shields, CF – 1-for-4, 2B, SB, R, RBI, BB

Game Notes: In his Low-A debut, Antonio Santillan struggled with command from the beginning. As a result, the start did not last long and was his shortest of the season.

Santillan walked one in the first, and allowed a stolen base, but was able to pitch around it.

However, it was in the second when he hit trouble. After allowing a lead off walk, Santillan allowed a single and a home run to back-to-back hitters to fall behind three runs. He then allowed a triple and hit the next batter to put to more on with no outs. A fielder’s choice plated another run, before he walked another, and got a ground out to retire the side.

After tossing a perfect third inning, Santillan followed the same path in the fourth as the second and was not able to survive the frame.

Following a fly out to start the inning, Santillan walked two and allowed a single to load the bases, before being lifted from the game in favor of Jacob Constante.

Daniel Sweet added two more hits and is now 7-for-20 in five games since joining Dayton.

Nick Senzel walked twice, but has now gone just 3-for-15 in his last five games. Chris Okey is in a similar slump, and is 3-for-20 in his last six games.
