Let’s get that up in the bigs, eh?

Worcester W 10-9

Jarren Duran, CF: 1-6, 1 K, 1 SB

Danny Santana, 1B: 0-3, 1 R, 2 K

Triston Casas, DH: 2-5, 2 2B, 1 RBI

Franchy Cordero, LF: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 SB

Yairo Muñoz, 3B: 0-4, 1 BB, 2 K

Connor Wong, C: 3-5, 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 R, 1 RBI

Jonathan Araúz, 2B: 3-5, 2 2B, 2 R

Jeter Downs, SS: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 3 RBI

Tate Matheny, RF: 3-3, 1 2B, 2 BB, 3 R, 2 RBI, 2 SB

Kutter Crawford (SP): 3.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 3 K (85 pitches)

John Schreiber (W): 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K (38 pitches)

Yacksel Ríos: 1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 1 K (30 pitches)

Durbin Feltman (H): 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K (9 pitches)

Austin Brice: 1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 0 BB, 1 K (26 pitches)

Worcester came very close to blowing this game, as they headed into the bottom of the seventh with a 9-3 lead, but allowed three in that inning and three more in the ninth. But the offense was ultimately enough. Wong’s performance certainly stands out with the homer and double, and it’s notable that we talked yesterday about Ronaldo Hernández and his quick acclimation to Triple-A. Both he and Wong will be battling for position on the catcher depth chart next season (provided neither are traded this winter, of course), and they’re making strong final cases to close out this season. Matheny will be our Player of the Day, getting on base five times. He’s had some surprisingly big games this year, though it’s still hard to see him being anything more than emergency depth for the highest level.

DSL Red L 3-4

Luis Ravelo, SS: 1-4, 1 RBI

Miguel Bleis, CF: 0-4

Allan Castro, LF: 2-4, 1 2B

Starlin Santos (SP): 4 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 0 K

DSL Blue L 6-9

Alexis Hernandez, RF: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI

Alex Zapete, 1B: 0-2, 1 BB, 1 R

Angel Lopez (SP): 1 IP, 2 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 0 K

Carlos Velez: 3 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 6 K

Honestly, not a whole lot to touch on from these games. Hernandez is having a nice close to his season, putting up a .396 OBP in the month of September. Bleis, meanwhile, didn’t have a great game at the plate but he did tally three outfield assists on the day.
