Game Recap:

The Gold team (27-12) scored five times in the bottom of the sixth, in a seven-inning game, to win a 12-9 donnybrook from Houston Orange.  Two-run triples by Ruben Vizcaya and Gustavo Armas keyed the rally.  Carlos Tirado continued a strong month of July, going 3-for-3 with a double and a sacrifice fly to boost his OPS for the month to .951.  He also stole a base.  That’s an encouraging showing for a guy who only turned 17 last March.  Vizcaya, Yordany De Los Santos and Armas also had good days.  Vizcaya reached four times on a triple, two walks and a hit batsman.  He stole a base, scored twice and drove in three.  De Los Santos had a single, a double and a walk.  Armas had a single, a triple and a walk.  Jhonson Pena also reached three times, on a single and two walks.  Starter Gilberto Alcala was shaky, giving up four runs in two and a third innings.  Rafael Mendez gave up another four, three earned, in two and two-thirds.  Patricio Ress finally threw a perfect seventh to close it out.

joesolo6181

PirateRican21

agent00

Kiley has the 2023 early rankings up over at ESPN. It’s quite different from other outlets. The top five are college OF Wyatt Langford, college SS Jacob Wilson, prep OF Max Clark, college OF Dylan Crews, and college arm Chase Dollander. And to bury the lede…Wilson is Jack’s son.

NMR

Would be hilarious if Jacob was like some massive three-true-outcomes first baseman.

ArkyWags

It would but his report sounds like the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

Colin

Happen to see where Thomas White was ranked?

ArkyWags

Wayyyy down. 26th. Noted that other players have caught up to him and he looks the same as he did a year ago. He doesn’t have his first prep arm till 22, Travis Sykora. He only has eight total arms in the top 31, four prep and four college.

Colin

Thanks man

leefieux

I hadn’t realized that Peguero’s avg had dropped into the .260s. Ugh

enriqueromo

went to the Curve/Baysox game on Wed—he made an error on an easy groundball—his overall play was not very energetic—head not in the game
