  • Star of the Game: Randy Vasquez – 7 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 79 pitches (52 strikes). Vasquez was unlucky not to get a win in this one, and broke a streak of three straight starts in which he allowed a home run
  • Anthony Volpe: 2-for-5, 1 double, 2 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 strikeouts, 2 stolen bases. Volpe wrapped up a barnstorming month in which he slashed .293/.358/.535 with five homers and 10 stolen bases

Tampa Tarpons (32-40): The Tarpons generated all of their offense via a couple of homers in a 5-3 defeat of Bradenton.

  • Star of the Game: Austin Wells – 1-for-4, 1 home run (2), 3 RBI, 1 run scored, 2 strikeouts. Wells continues to progress in working his way back from an injury, and it shouldn’t be long before he’s back at High-A
