HIGHLIGHTS

Tanner Burns (Lake County, SP): ND, 5 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 4 K – Burns dominated in his longest outing since July 2, throwing 73 pitches (49 of them strikes) en route to reaching the five-inning threshold for the first time since coming off the injured list August 5.  While he may not be 100% back, especially in terms of workload, he seems to be a long way into said journey.  If only the Captains’ hitters could’ve commemorated his return to win eligibility by giving him the run support necessary for the individual victory…

Cody Morris (Columbus, SP): 4IP, 7H 4R (0ER), 7K – Morris allowed seven hits in four innings but also struck out seven and two errors allowed four unearned runs to score. Only about two hits were well struck off him in an otherwise dominant outing that doesn’t look that way in the box score.

BEST OF THE REST

Will Benson (Columbus, RF): 1-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB,1 K, 1 E – Benson’s colossal fifth-inning homer over the batter’s eye in center field and likely into Nationwide Blvd. traffic was the highlight of an otherwise largely unimpressive night for the #ClipShow.

Will Brennan (Akron, CF): 1-3, 1 BB, 1 CS – Brennan continues to be Mr. Consistent, getting on base twice even on a rough night for the RubberDucks lineup.

Jose Fermin (Akron, 2B-SS): 1-4, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K – Fermin drove in the only RubberDuck run of the game in his first Double-A appearance since his demotion from Triple-A Columbus.

Christian Cairo (Lake County, 3B): 1-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB – Cairo’s solo shot led off the offensive portion of the game for the Captains.  Most of what followed from the Lake County lineup was offensive in another sense.

Korey Holland (Lynchburg, CF): 2-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K – Holland’s first home run since August 26 opened the scoring for the Hillcats last night.

Jorge Burgos (Lynchburg, LF): 1-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K – Burgos’ first non-complex homer gave the Hillcats the lead back an inning later after the Red Sox tied the game in top of the fourth.

Miguel Jerez (Lynchburg, 1B): walkoff shot on the fourth pitch of the bottom of the ninth.

Aaron Davenport (Lynchburg, SP): ND, 3 IP, 1 H,2 BB, 4 K – Through two non-complex starts, Davenport has pitched six shutout innings, allowing only three hits and three walks while striking out ten.
