Bryan Lavastida (Akron, C): 3-4, 2 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K, 1 E – While Columbus proved to be a little advanced for Lavastida at this point in his career, he seems to have found his current level in Double-A. In 25 games as a RubberDuck, Bryan has posted a higher number in two-thirds of his slash line (.315/.386/.494) than he did in his 48 games at High-A to start the season (.303/.399/.467).
Jhonkensy Noel (Lake County, 3B): 1-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K – Noel continues to rake, as Wednesday’s homer was his eighth as a Captain and drove in his 23rd and 24th High-A runs in 23 games played at the level. When his 38 games as a Hillcat and six-game rehab stint in the ACL are included, he has 19 home runs and 65 RBI in 67 games this season.
BEST OF THE REST
Gabriel Arias (Columbus, SS): 2-5, 1 2B, 3 RBI – Arias has driven in ten runs this month, all coming in a trio of three-RBI or better games (three on 9/3, four on 9/5 – both at home vs. St. Paul).
Oscar Gonzalez (Columbus, RF): 1-5, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K, 1 E – Gonzalez has five home runs, twelve RBI, and a .302 ISO for the month of September.
Will Brennan (Akron, CF): 2-5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 K, 1 SB – Brennan extended his on-base streak to 16 games, dating back to August 28, with his third two-hit game of his last four. In those four games, he is 6-for-17 with six runs scored.
George Valera (Akron, RF): 2-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI – Valera extended his hitting streak to eight games with his 19th homer of the season (Akron and Lake County combined), but it unfortunately wasn’t enough for the RubberDucks, whose magic number relative to both Somerset and Bowie remains at four following last night’s loss and Baysox win.
Raynel Delgado (Lake County, PH): 1-1, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI – Delgado broke out of his six-game 1-for-20 drought at the perfect time, providing a pair of runs for yet another crucial final week victory for the Eastlake nine, who now hold the provisional second playoff position thanks to losses last night by the Great Lakes Loons and Cedar Rapids Kernels.
Milan Tolentino (Lynchburg, 2B): 1-3, 2 R 1 HR, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 K – Tolentino led off the fourth with the game’s only home run and his first in non-complex ball.
Gabriel Rodriguez (Lynchburg, SS): 2-3, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 E – Rodriguez’s on-base streak started on August 27 and has now reached 15 games. It has included two four-game hitting streaks, one of them active. During the active streak, Gabriel is 6-for-16 with five runs scored and three driven in (the RBI all coming in the last two nights).
Alexfri Planez (Lynchburg, DH): 2-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K – Planez is 8-for-19 with four runs scored, three driven in and three multi-hit games in his last four.
