Abbreviated Box Score Report
Here’s the affiliate scoreboard from MiLB.
Still using my cell phone as a personal hot spot. Doing a full blown Box Score Report over the shared connection on my cell phone is tedious.
So, I created a few Box Score Reports in advance that will upload each night automatically to provide the link to the box scores and a place to comment on games each day until I am completely back on the grid.
Sorry for this temporary inconvenience.
These notes are from the Threshers’ game. I added them to this post while I was still at the stadium, using their internet. (Spectrum Field, Isn’t that ironic?)
Cole Irvin pitched very well. The Threshers’ defense was a little shaky, again.
Irvin pitched 7.0 innings. He threw 93 pitches, 67 strikes (72.0%). He gave up 3 runs, only 1 was earned. He ran one three-ball count, walked one, and struck out seven.
Irvin’s FB sat 90-92 MPH and topped out at 93 MPH. He threw his CH in the 82-84 MPH range and it worked well for him. He threw one CB at 788 MPH late in the game (6th inning).
The Fire Frogs (Atlanta’s affiliate) took 11 pitches for strikes (16.4%), two for strike outs at 93 and 91 MPH. They swung and missed 21 pitches (31.3%), five for strike outs at 82, 84, 82, 78, and 83 MPH. In fact 18 of the 21 misses Irvin induced came on his change up (plus one on his CB and 2 on his FB).
Irvin scattered 8 hits. Only one was struck hard, a line drive single in the fourth inning. That became the first run when the next batter fisted a pop double down the left field line.
Irvin picked off the first batter to reach base on an infield single in the third inning.
Deivi Grullon picked a runner off second in the seventh inning.
Herlis Rodriguez hit his third HR for the Threshers only run.
The Frogs starter was LHP Luiz Gohara. He went seven, scoreless, 4-hit innings walking one and striking out seven. He’s 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA. He is the Braves #10 prospect. He was acquired by the Braves when they traded CF Mallex Smith and RHP Shae Simmons to Seattle Gohara and LHP Thomas Burrows. At the time of the trade (1/17/17) Gohara was the #3 prospect in the Mariners organization.
As I sign off here, Lakewood is in a scoreless tie and Reading is in a rain delay.
