Chris Seddon pitched six strong innings, backed up by three innings of scoreless relief from Tyler Sturdevant and Scott Barnes, but the offense ruled the day. Tim Fedroff went 3-4 with two HRs and a walk, Jared Goedert went 4-5 with three doubles, Zeke, Canzler and Phelps all added two hits. Fedroff has officially gone Kouzmanoff...be warned.
Akron, Bowie PPD
Cole Cook pitched a perfect 2.1 innings with three Ks. Carlos Moncrief had a triple.
Roberto Hernandez made his improbable debut for the Captains, making it through five innings while allowing six hits and three runs (only one earned run). The good thing is that he recorded nine groundouts, no walks and four Ks. The walks and groundouts are both encouraging. Jose Ramirez and Luigi Rodriguez each hit doubles.
Mahoning Valley, Staten Island PPD
