Tony Campana went 3-4 with a pair of stolen bases. He also somehow threw  guy out from the OF with his baby arm. So there's that.


No Game


No Game. Between the rainouts and off days Baez should have just stayed put


Yao Lin Wang had another good start going 6 IP and striking out 4. He allowed a pair of solo HR's including one to Miguel Sano. Jorge Soler was 2-3 and is doing very well since his promotion. 


Jeimer Candelario was 3-4 and has had a really nice year for an 18 year old in short season. Gioskar Amaya went 2-5 and stole his 11th base. Jose Arias struck out 4 in 6 IP and gave up a pair of runs. Hayden Simpson continues his quest to be the worst pitcher in the minors giving up 8 runs (6 earned) in .1 IP. 


Albert Almora was 5-6 with a stolen base last night. His timing seems to have returned and it will be interesting to see if they move him up for the last few weeks. He has drawn 2 walks in 75 AB's. Shawon Dunston Jr went 3-6 with a triple and has salvaged what started out as a disastrous campaign. Dillon Maples pitched 3 innings and struck out 5 batters while putting up 0's on the board. Maples has pitched well in his last 3 outings.
