Salem W 6-2
Josh Tobias: 1-4, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K, 2 SB
Michael Chavis: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K
Josh Ockimey: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI, 2 K
Austin Rei: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI
Kyri Washington: 1-4, 2 RBI, 3 K
Roniel Raudes: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 5 K
It’s been a bit of a strange year for Raudes, who was one of the most interesting prospects in the system before the season. As someone who relies more on command than stuff, this was the first game the righty struck out more than three batters in an
inning outing. This was his best outing of the young season — and he’s only had four — but so far he hasn’t done a ton to live up to some people’s high expectations.
Greenville W 5-1
Santiago Espinal: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI
Tyler Hill: 2-5, 1 3B, 1 RBI, 1 K
Bobby Dalbec: 1-5, 2 K
Yoan Aybar: 1-3, 1 K
After starting the season off on a tear, Dalbec is in the midst of a little bit of a mini slump. He’s had just one multi-hit game since April 16 (a seven-game stretch) and has two extra-base hits during that same timeframe. He’s also continued to have strikeout problems, as he’s gone without a strikeout in just two of his 18 games this season. This isn’t a reason to be down on Dalbec, of course, but it’s something to watch for. You can’t succeed in baseball without being able to make adjustments on the fly, and that’ll be the next task for the young third baseman.
