A.J. Reed at 1st: Check

Colin Moran at 3B: Check

Tyler White at DH: Check

Matt Duffy at SS: Che......WHAT?!?!?

Yep, that happened and it wasn't pretty.

McDonald Knocks Go-Ahead HR in Sixth for 3-2 Win

Yes, Chase McDonald was the hero. But, I can't talk enough about Derek Fisher this season. He drew another two walks last night to add to his already ridiculous walk-rate of 18%. Sure, he strikes out 25% of the time. That's always been the issue with Nolan Fontana (who has cut his walk-rate down to 9%...what happened?!?!?), too many strikeouts. The difference with this is that Fisher is a much better hitter than Fontana and can drive the ball, plus he has a ton more power. Interesting note on Fisher's power, he pulls a lot of ground balls but rarely pulls home runs.

Lancaster Walks Off in 10th 8-7

Fielding errors save the day. Bottom of the tenth with one out and Antonio Nunez reaches on a fielding error. Apparently a good enough error to reach second. Then, Bobby Boyd reaches first on a fielder's choice but Nunez is still safe on second. Garrett Stubbs to save the day. He ropes a double to score Nunez and game over.

Quad Cities Gets One Hit in 2-0 Loss

One hit. And that one came in the sixth when everyone started thinking no-hitter. But, both runs allowed were unearned so the pitching staff held up their end. Jose Hernandez and Elieser Hernandez teamed up for a great tandem performance. Elieser is pitching much better than he did in Lancaster earlier this season.

TC Falls 4-3

Ronnie Dawson stole 21 bases for Ohio State this season and he's well on his way to showing that kind of speed on the bases in Tri-City. He stole two bases last night and it's not your usual steal second each time you get on base. It was take second and then go ahead and take third.

Franco Homers in Opening Day Loss for Greeneville

Wander Franco was a fairly big IFA signing a few years back as a short stop. But, like most IFA they start out there because they're so young and versatile with their athleticism. But, they grow out of it. He has spent most of his stateside career as a third baseman. He hit three home runs in the GCL last season and one for a brief stint with the QC River Bandits.

DSL Orange Loses 8-4

Seventeen-year old Hector Martinez who signed in 2014 was scouted as occasional home run power but now has three this season which is a lot in a short DSL. Usually it's guys in their 20's with totals over that at this point of the season.
