Salem L 1-2
Tate Matheny: 1-4, 1 K
Josh Ockimey: 0-4, 2 K
Austin Rei: 0-3, 3 K
Austin Glorius: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 5 K
This....this was not a good game. Honestly, this Salem team is just not very exciting on most nights right now. There’s always at least one level that is like this, and for the time being that’s Salem. Oh well, they had enough talent last year to last them a decade.
Greenville L 2-5
Lorenzo Cedrola: 1-4, 1 R
Roldani Baldwin: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 RBI
Bobby Dalbec: 0-3, 1 BB, 2 K
Bryan Mata: 3.2 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 2 BB, 7 K
Mata continues to be exciting, although he was certainly rough around the edges in this one. He really got into trouble in his fourth and final inning, and he wasn’t able to get out of that inning. Before that, though, he had seven strikeouts through three scoreless innings. The outing wasn’t perfect, but Mata is still continuing to show that he is among the more exciting prospects in the system.
Lowell W 10-3
Brett Netzer: 3-5, 1 2B, 3 R, 1 RBI
Garrett Benge: 5-5, 1 2B, 1 3B, 2 R, 5 RBI
Benge has been up and down in his first professional season after being selected in the 13th round in June. This was obviously a huge game, though, and it was enough to raise his batting average by about 40 points. Short-season ball is fun.
