DSL – Indians Red 6, Dodgers Shoemaker 8


Austin Aldeano (DSL Red, SP): 4 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 3 K, 0 BB – While Aldeano did allow his first walk of the season in a recent appearance, he didn’t add to that total of one yesterday as he had another scoreless start for team Red. He scattered six hits with a single in the first, single and double in the second, two singles in the third and another single in the fourth. He struck out three in his final two innings giving him 27 K’s to one walk this year with six earned runs allowed in 31.2 innings.

Oscar Cedeno (DSL Red, 3B): 1/2, 3 RBI, HR, SB – Cedeno first reached in the second when he was hit by a pitch, but was out trying to go from first to third on a single. He was hit again in the fifth and stole second, but was stranded at third. His big hit came in the sixth as he hit a three run homer to give team Red four runs in the inning and give them a four run lead.

Best of the rest

Matt Turner (ACL Indians, SP): 1 IP, 0 H, 0 BB, 0 R, 2 K – Turner has been out with injury since May, but finally made his return to the mound against the Giants last night. He pitched just the first inning and struck out his first and third hitters without allowing a baserunner.

Will Bartlett (ACL Indians, 1B): 1/2, R, 2B – Bartlett had been out for about three months before returning this week on rehab assignment. After going hitless in his first game, he doubled in his second at bat last night and scored the first run of the game on a Victor Planchart single. He was then pulled from the game.

Juan Mateo (ACL Indians, RP): 2.1 IP, 0 H, 0 BB, 0 R, K – Mateo joined the game in the sixth with two on and two outs and stranded both runners with a ground out. He then struck out one in a perfect seventh and threw another perfect inning in the eighth.

Angel Mendoza (DSL Red, RF): 2/4, R – Mendoza singled home a run in the third, but was caught trying to stretch it to a double and the run was not credited as an RBI. He singled again in the sixth and advanced on a wild pitch and a couple walks, enabling him to score on a ground out.

Robert Cruz (DSL Blue, RP): 3 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 4 K, 0 BB – Team Blue didn’t have any particularly impressive performances, but Cruz was the best of the pitchers. He skirted around a single and triple allowed in the fourth with a double play in between, then allowed a run in the fifth in a situation that could have been worse. He hit the first batter, but the runner was caught stealing. He then gave up back to back doubles for a run, but limited the damage there. He struck out a batter in his final inning while retiring all three batters faced.
