Tuesday’s highlights included Lehigh Valley’s David Buchanan coming within one batter of a complete game shutout, Reading’s Dylan Cozens two-hit, two-RBI game, and Mitch Walding’s three-hit, three-RBI game. Walding’s three RBI all came with two outs on three different occasions.
Nick Fanti tossed five no-hit innings, striking out ten. Sixto Sanchez had pitched three no-hit innings before the game was suspended on Monday. A third pitcher lost the no-hitter and the shutout in the ninth inning. Loads of photos and video from the GCL game in the report below.
And down in the Dominican Summer League, Oscar Marcelino pitched two-hit ball for six innings, and Jesus De Los Santos six hits in seven innings.
