Eric Wooten pitched a gem of a game but the Tampa Yankees didn’t want to back him up for the win. Wooten faced seveteen batters during his five innings of work. He struck out five while issuing a walk, a hit and an earned run. The 24 year old has pitched well since being picked up in 2013 as a minor league free agent. More of an organizational player he won’t be someone you want to keep an eye on but he pitched well tonight and deserved the win.
Captain Clutch of the Game:
Hard to have a player who is clutch when you only have three total hits but the player is Dante Bichette. Bichette is trying to simplify his swing and regain some status not only nationally but also within the organization. He went one for one with three walks. On a day when all the players combined to be on base ten times Bichette who DHed got on 40% of the time.
Golden Sombrero of the Game:
This goes to every other hitter but Bichette. The rest of the team was two for twenty nine on the night with four walk. That wont’ be getting it done.
The Tampa Yankees don’t have a starter assigned yet. I wouldn’t be shocked if DePaula toes the rubber tomorrow.
