The ACL Reds lost 10-1. Box Score

Game Notes

The Mariners scored seven runs in the bottom of the second inning and they never looked back. The Reds one run may have led you to believe they didn’t have baserunners, but they simply couldn’t come through with a hit when runners were in scoring position. They had nine hits, four walks, and one hit batter – but they went 0-10 with runners in scoring position on the night.

Sammy Stafura has reached base in all six games he has played in this season and he’s now got hits in five of them. He’s hitting .462/.533/.654 with four walks and five strikeouts.

Sheng-En Lin has a 6-game hitting streak dating back to the final game of last season. He’s had a hit in all five games this year. He’s now got seven walks on the season and is hitting .421/.577/.579. Also of note is that all five of his starts this year have come at third base.

Kyle Henley had two hits for the third time out of five games played this season. He also struck out twice in the game, which he’s now done in each game and has 12 on the year.

Nick Payero pitched in four games last year with the ACL Reds and threw 7.2 innings. He allowed 15 hits, six walks, and had nine strikeouts while facing 43 batters and posting an ERA of 10.57. This season he’s pitched in two games and thrown 8.0 innings with a 3.38 ERA while giving up just six hits, walking just two batters, and he’s struck out 10 of the 27 batters he’s faced.

Organizational Notes

Jacob Hurtubise was called up to the big leagues on Monday afternoon to take the spot on the roster when the team placed TJ Friedl on the injured list with a broken thumb. He made his debut as a pinch runner in the 8th inning but was stranded on third.
