Doubleheader Split

Game One

Key story:

Rookie Davis got the ball and didn’t pitch great to start the doubleheader.  He went four inning and gave up five runs with four of the runs being earned.  Davis struck out four which was good but walked two and gave up seven hits.  That doomed him and cost him the lost.  Davis was a sleeper pick for some people who follow the Yankees minor league system.  His 4.45 ERA isn’t making them look smart right now.


Captain Clutch of the Game:

Aaron Judge just keeps hitting.  He went three for five on the day to raise his average to .369.  With some promotions starting to take place look for him to make the jump to Tampa within the next two weeks or so.  He is just destroying this level and has nothing else to prove.  I had liked the Yankees assigning him here to gain confidence since he lost the whole summer because of an injury.  He’s proven he is too good for this level and needs to be promoted.


Golden Sombrero:

Mikeson Oliberto gets the nod here as he went hitless in three at bats with a strikeout and a walk.  He also was pulled for Michael O’Neil later in the game.


Game Two:

Key Story:

Jaron Long got the ball and pitched effective. Long went four innings and didn’t allow any runs.  He struck out two while allowing only two hits.  He kept the ball on the ground with five groundball outs compared to three flyball outs.  As a college pitcher Kevin Long’s son should be able to dominate this level since he came from a top d1 school in Ohio State.


Captain Clutch of the Game:

Eduardo de Oleo went one for two with a homerun and two RBI’s.  That was all the Riverdogs needed in the victory.  de Oleo has been getting a lot of playing time with Luis Torrens injury and the stick has slowly started to come around.


Golden Sombrero of the Game:

Michael O’Neil gets this award again.  Today he gets it because he batted 100 when it comes to striking out.  In two plate appearances he struck out both times.


Up Next:

Severino is on the hill to take on Delmarva.  Can Severino lower his era lower than his current 1.89?
