Triple-A – Louisville Bats 1, Columbus Clippers 2
DSL – Indians Blue 2, Red Sox Red 3
DSL – Rays2 11, Indians Red 6 (F/10)
Heath Fillmyer Columbus, SP): 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 5 K – Fillmyer walked a batter in the first, then allowed a single in the third after a perfect second. He was perfect again in the fourth before allowing a walk and single in the fifth. He used a double play to finish that inning with the shut out intact. That would go away in the sixth as he allowed a lead off single and a steal before another single knocked home the only Bats run. The Clippers held on to the 2-1 lead, however, earning Heath the win.
Elian Quezada (Red, SP): 4 IP, H, R, 2 BB, 5 K – Quezada started with a perfect first, then allowed a single, steal and wild pitch for a run in the first. He avoided an unearned run, however, by nabbing a runner attempting to steal home to end the inning. He hit two batters and walk another to load the bases in the third, but escaped without allowing another run. He walked one more in the fourth, but left the game down just one before Indians Red scored four in the following inning.
Best of the rest
Ernie Clement (Columbus, 3B/SS): 2/4, HR – Clement singled on a bunt in the first to put two on, but was stranded. He then added on to the one run lead in the fifth with a one out, solo home run.
Connor Marabell (Columbus, 1B): 2/4, HR – Marabell brought home the first run of the game in the fourth with a one out, solo home run. He then singled in the sixth to put two on, but was caught stealing immediately after.
Esteban Gonzalez (Red, CF): 2/5, 2 RBI, 2B – Gonzalez got started late as he singled home a run in the seventh for his first hit. He knocked in a second run in the ninth with a double, tying the game at six and forcing extra innings. The bullpen would then allow five runs in the next inning for the loss.
Alan Romero (Red, 1B): 2/3, R, 2 BB – Romero walked in the fifth to load the bases, then later scored on an error. He then singled, but was stranded at second. He walked again in the eighth to reach for a third time.
Adonis Cepeda (Blue, LF): 3/3, R, BB – Cepeda singled to start the third, then scored on a single and an error. He singled again in the fourth, then had a very strange single in the sixth. While he was technically safe, Maick Collado was out trying to score, then Angel Contreras was out going back to second for an inning ending double play. He added a walk in the ninth, but was stranded to end the game.
Reyden Hidalgo (Blue, 2B/3B): 2/5, R – It was Hidalgo’s single in the third that scored Cepeda, although the error cost him the RBI. He singled again in the ninth to put two on, but both were stranded.
Dielmon Urena (Blue, SP): 3.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 3 K – Urena walked a batter in the first, but he was out trying to advance to second. He then hit a batter in the second, but retired him with a double play. He walked two more in the third and an error loaded the bases, but kept the Sox scoreless. He struck out and walked a batter in the fourth before seeing an early removal for relief. This was a huge start for Urena who has struggled this year and hadn’t had a scoreless appearance since August 14.
