Game notes

The Dragons offense went all out in the game. Kyle Waldrop left the game after a leg injury on his double. Hopefully it isn’t serious. He pushed his average up to .284 on the year.

  • Nolan Becker threw a perfect 9th inning with a strikeout.

Game notes

Carlos Sanchez hit 4 doubles in the game and one of them was almost a league record tying triple, but there was an error on the relay throw that kept Sanchez one off of the league record. He is hitting .311/.349/.591 on the year. He could sure up his plate discipline, but his power is playing quite well. Zach Vincej is hitting .418 in 22 games so far as a professional. The Mustangs faced the leagues best starter, who came in with an ERA of 1.33 and left with an ERA of 2.05. The game tonight will be on Milb.tv if you are a subscriber.
