Best of the rest

Heath Fillmyer (Columbus, SP): 5 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 4 K – Despite the game starting with an error, Fillmyer used a pick-off to eliminate the runner and throw a scoreless first. He walked batters in the first and second, but used a double play to eliminate the second one. The walks finally caught up to him in the third as the runner stole second and scored on a single, his only hit or run allowed. He was then perfect through the fourth and fifth, striking out his final two batters faced.

Gabriel Arias (Columbus, SS): 3/5, 2B, R, 2 RBI – Arias doubled for Colombus’ first hit of the game, then scored on Johnson’s homer. He singled to reach again in the third. In the fifth, he was out at second on a strange play that scored two runs, but was scored a fielder’s choice and an error. Arias kind of knocked in another run in the seventh when he reached on an error. He added another single in the ninth, but was stranded.

Daniel Johnson (Columbus, RF): 3/5, 3 RBI, 2B, R, HR – Johnson put the Clippers on the board in the first with a two run homer. He added a double in the fifth, then reached again in the seventh with an RBI single.

Jake Miednik (Akron, RP): 3 IP, H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K – It was a rather uneventful night for Akron, but Miednik was fantastic in relief. He joined the game in the sixth, allowing a triple, but striking out the other three batters. He was then perfect with a K in the seventh and eighth, but the Ducks offense never woke up.

Micah Pries (Lake County, ): 2/4, R, RBI, 2B – Pries singled in the first, but was stranded. He then doubled home the Captains first run in the third and scored on a John Rodriguez single.

Jake Janczak (Lake County, RP): 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K – The Captains took a fairly high scoring loss, but not because of Janczak. He joined the game in the sixth and went three scoreless, starting with a perfect inning. He walked one in his second inning, but used a double play to eliminate the runner. He threw another perfect inning to wrap up his night.

Will Dion (Lynchburg, RP): 3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 2 BB, 3 K – Making his low A debut, Dion was the Hillcats top pitcher, finishing the game with three no hit, scoreless innings. He entered the game in the sixth and struck out one, then struck out two in a second perfect inning in the seventh. The eighth was his roughest inning as he walked two, but caught one stealing to help make sure the Nationals wouldn’t add on.

Alexfri Planez (Lynchburg, RF): 3/4, R – Planez singled in the fourth, then again to lead off the sixth. After advancing on a single and wild pitch, he scored on a ground out. He added another single in the eighth, but was out on a double play for the second time.

Zac Fascia (ACL Indians, C): 3/3, 2 R, 2 2B – Fascia initially doubled in the third to lead off the inning, then scored on a double play. He next singled in the sixth and scored on a sac fly and batted again that inning, hitting a double.

Frederic Garcia (DSL Blue, RP): 3.1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 BB, 2 K – Keeping with our theme of lengthy scoreless relief appearances, the earliest of the day was Garcia, who jumped into early action in the third. Coming in with two on and two outs in the third, he quickly finished the inning, then threw a perfect fourth, fifth and sixth to keep team Blue in the game.

Junior Caminero (DSL Red, 3B): 2/3, HR – The Indians Red were crushed yesterday, but Caminero continued his incredible hot streak with a single in the second, and a home run in the sixth.
