Highlights

Will Benson (CF, Columbus): 2-5, 3B, HR, 2 RBI – Benson hit a triple and his first Triple-A homer in the Clippers offensive battle vs. Memphis. His OPS in Columbus so far is .905. He’s got 10 strikeouts in seven games, but he’s producing.

Gabriel Arias (SS, Columbus) 3-5, 2B, 2 RBI – Arias hit his 20th double of the year in the loss. His power has been down this month and the strikeouts up, but is maintaining a good average.

Andruw Monasterio (2B, Columbus): 4-5, 3R, RBI – Though it was four singles, Monasterio continues to hit, hit and hit, taking advantage of opportunities this year and looks like a good future utility player with a solid bat.

Nolan Jones (3B, Columbus): 2-4, HR, BB, 3R – Jones is having one of the best months of his season right now in terms of average and continues to hit well away from Huntington Park’s bandbox, which is both confusing and good.

Brayan Rocchio (SS, Akron): 2-4, 3B, RBI – Though he crossed home after the triple, it was due to an error that gave him a little league homer. Still it was another multi-hit night for the burgeoning star.

Korey Holland (CF, Lynchburg): 3-5, 2B, 2BB – Holland was on base five times at the top of the order in this one. The 21 year old has a .370 OBP in August, which is a great sign for his skill set with his speed and raw swing.

Best of the rest

Jake Fox (SS, ACL): 2-5, 2 RBI – Fox has hit a ton his firsr few pro games. Not bad for a high school player in his first week of pro ball and live games.

Dayan Frias (DH, ACL): 3-5, 2B, HR, 3 RBI – The 5’7 infielder/DH does strike out a lot but sure hits for a lot of power so far.

Konnor Pilkington (SP, Akron): 5IP, 2H, R, 2BB, 6K – Pilkington continues to turn in good starts since he’s been in the Cleveland organziation.

Chris Roller (RF, Akron): 2-4, SB – Roller has played well since coming off the IL and though playing time may be crowded next year, he should be back.

Jorge Burgos (DH, Lynchburg): 2-5, 2 RBI – It’s been a slow start for the young OF since his promotion out of rookie ball but this was a good performance.

Miguel Jerez (1B, Lynchburg): 1-3, HR, 2 RBI – Jerez now has six homers and has taken over 1B duties for the Hillcats with Noel promoted.

Juan Zapata (SP, Lynchburg): 5.2IP, 4H, ER, BB, 4K – Lynchburg needed a good start after a disastrous game the other day and just a bad rotation all around at this point.

Gabriel Rodriguez (3B, Lynchburg): 2-5, RBI – The overall numbers aren’t great for Rodriguez, who we all expected to have big numbers like the rest of his signing class, but he’s been better recently.

Yordys Valdez (SS, Lynchburg): 2-4 – Valdez has been a good SS but hasn’t hit much this year so this was good to see.

Daniel Espino (SP, Lake County): 5IP, 3H, 3ER, BB, 7K – Though he gave up another HR on the fastball, Espino worked into the fifth ining and fanned seven against a good lineup that gave him trouble earlier this year.

Jhonkensy Noel (3B, Lake County): 1-3, HR, 2 RBI, BB, K – Noel completed the three true outcomes game with his first homer at Classic Park.

Junior Sanquentin (3B, ACL): 2-4, 2B, BB, K – Despite his K’s, Sanquentin also continues to tear up ACL ball.

Victor Planchart (1B, ACL): 2-4, 3R, RBi – Normally a catcher, Planchart got some time at 1B here and hit well.

Aaron Davenport (SP, ACL): 2.2 IP, 3R, 2ER, BB, 5K – One of the few 2021 draft picks that is pitching, Davenport had another solid day despite giving up a few runs.

Will Dion (RP, ACL): IP, 3K – Will Dion made his pro debut here and struck out the side.

Maick Collado (3B, DSL Blue): 3-4, 3B, RBI – The first triple of the 18 year olds career.

Emilio Tavares (C, DSL Blue): 1-2, 2 RBI, 3BB – A solid day reaching base four times and driving in two for the 18 year old.
