Elly De La Cruz hit an inside the park home run that you have to see to believe (or even understand) while Michael Siani went off at the plate and Eduardo Salazar set a new career high with 11 strikeouts in a Lookouts win, Austin Hendrick had another nice day at the plate while Noelvi Marte and Tyler Callihan also picked up two hits each for Dayton, and Ashton Creal homered twice for Daytona in an extra-innings loss.

The ACL Reds had the day off
The Reds games for Friday and Saturday have been cancelled due to a COVID outbreak it would appear. There’s a scheduled day off on Sunday. As of now the team’s game on Monday has not been postponed or cancelled.
The DSL Reds had the day off
They’ll be off until at least August 8th. Multiple games have been outright cancelled, and several more have been postponed since they last played on July 26th. They’ve also had some scheduled off days in there, but there’s a COVID outbreak it would seem as all of the cancelled/postponed games have been marked as such on the scoreboard.
