Game recap (8/17/16): Davis and Santillan make best start at new level, Peraza doubles three times


Result: Louisville  4, Indianapolis 1

Starting Pitcher: Rookie Davis, RHP – 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

Top Hitter: Jose Peraza, SS – 3-for-4, 3 2B, R, RBI, BB

Other Notable Performers:

Jesse Winker, RF – 1-for-5, RBI

Juan Perez, LF – 3-for-5, 2B

Game Notes: Rookie Davis had easily his best start in three efforts since being promoted to Triple-A.

After getting beat around in his first two outings, and allowing 10 and seven hits, Davis settled in nicely on Wednesday.

Davis struck out the first two hitters that he faced, and allowed just a lone single in the first inning. He matched that performance in the second with one hit allowed and two strikeouts.

He allowed a hit each in the third and fourth, but still no runs to cross the plate. Davis allowed a two out double in the fourth, but Jesse Winker nailed the runner trying to stretch it into a triple.

Davis picked up three straight ground outs in the fifth, and finally ran into his first trouble in the sixth. After a pair of walks, Davis had two on with one out. However, he reached deep for a strike out and a pop out just behind second base to end his day.

Jose Peraza had quite a day with three doubles. Peraza is now riding a six-game hit streak, which he is 10-for-23 over.

Winker also extended his 10-game hit streak in the game with a single.


Result: Mississippi 6, Pensacola 3

Starting Pitcher: Jackson Stephens, RHP – 4.2 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 0 BB, 5 K

Top Hitter: Sebastian Elizalde, RF – 2-for-3, R, RBI

Other Notable Performers:

Phillip Ervin, LF – 2-for-4

Brandon Dixon, CF – 1-for-4, 2B, RBI

Game Notes: Jackson Stephens had one of the worst stat lines that he has had in a start this season. Stephens has been nothing but consistent with Pensacola all season long, but the nine hits allowed did him in on Wednesday,

Stephens breezed through the first, as he struck out the first two batters of the game. After striking out the first hitter in the second as well, he allowed a solo home run. Stephens also allowed two-out doubles and triples in the third for another run.

He was spared another run in the third, when Taylor Sparks threw out a runner at the plate for a fielder’s choice. Stephens, though, allowed four more runs in the fifth on three singles and then a home run, and was unable to make it through the inning.

Sebastian Elizalde and Phillip Ervin each added a pair of hits, and chipped in four of the team’s seven for the contest.


Result:  Daytona 2, Dunedin 0, Game was suspended in the second

Starting Pitcher: Keury Mella, RHP – 1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Other Notable Performers:

Juan Duran, DH – 1-for-1, R

Blake Trahan, SS – 1-for-2

Game Notes: Daytona was suspended by rain, and the game will resume on Friday as part of a double header.

Before the rain came, Aristides Aquino hit his 21st home run of the season and added another outfield assist.

Keury Mella allowed three hits in the first inning, but no runs to score.


Result: Dayton 2, Fort Wayne 0

Starting Pitcher: Antonio Santillan, RHP – 5.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 10 K

Top Hitter: Brantley Bell, DH – 2-for-4

Other Notable Performers:

Nick Senzel, 3B – 1-for-4, 2 K

Alberti Chavez, 2B – 1-for-2, HR, R, 2 RBI

Game Notes: Antonio Santillan had his best start since being promoted to Dayton and showcased that ability to miss bats that got him the call up.

Santillan retired 10 of the 16 batters that he got out via the strikeout. He also allowed that one lone hit.

The biggest issue for Santillan still was command, as he walked three and ran his pitch count up in the contest with deeper counts.

Alberti Chavez hit a home run in his first game since being promoted from Billings.


Result: Idaho Falls 7, Billings 5

Starting Pitcher: Moises Nova, RHP – 5 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

Top Hitter: Taylor Trammell, LF – 2-for-3, 2B, 3B, RBI, 3 R, 2 BB

Other Notable Performers:

Ty Blankmeyer, 2B– 2-for-4, 2B, RBI

Colby Wright, 1B – 2-for-4, 2B, 3 RBI

Game Notes: Taylor Trammell picked up a double and a triple for Billings, and has been on a tear in his last three games.

In those contests, Trammell has gone 5-for-11 with six runs scored and four walks. He had been 1-for-11 in his three games prior to the stretch.

Moises Nova allowed just one hit and one run over five strong innings for Billings. He did walk two more hitters though, and that has been his main issue of late.
