Bryan Mitchell had his best stuff for the final start of the season as the Dogs beat the GreenJackets by the score of seven to one. As a team the Dogs had 14 hits in 40 at bats to go with two walks and seven strike outs.
At the plate the best day went to Dante Bichette which is something he needed as this wasn’t the season the Yankee nor Bichette thought he would have. Today thou he went three for four with a double and two runs scored. Bichette finished pretty well over the last ten games in every area except what he was known for and that’s power. Bichette’s final ten games produced a line of .371/.463/.457 for an OPS of .921. Hopefully this gives Bichette some confidence going into next year where he will be repeating Low A.
Casey McGehee, Robert Refsnyder and Cody Grice all went two for four on the day. McGehee had a double and a run scored. Rrefsnyder had a run scored, RBI and a walk. Grace had two strikeouts and a walk.
The game story was Bryan Mitchell as he threw a one hit shutout in six innings. Mitchell struck out six batters to no walks. He did hit two batters but kept the ball on the ground as he got five groundball outs compared to only three flyball outs.
Phillip Wetherell finished the game by going three innings and giving up an earned run on two hits and two walks. Wetherell did strike out four guys and go the other outs via the groundball.
This was the last game for the Dogs as they didn’t make the playoffs. I will have more in the coming weeks on a few players on this roster and how they performed.
