Bobby Bradley bashes two home runs for Columbus, Luis Oviedo returns to form with six scoreless innings

Cleveland Indians minor league recap for May 7, 2019

Columbus Clippers 5, Charlotte Knights 11

Box Score · Clippers fall to 18-13

Adam Plutko was activated from the injured list and made his 2019 debut for the Clippers.

It didn’t go well.

Plutko only managed to get one batter out, getting blasted for five runs (all earned) on two hits and three walks and one strikeout in just 0.1 innings.

On the bright side, Bobby Bradley had one of the best games of his young career, going 4-4 at the dish with two home runs and a double. One of those home runs was perhaps the longest dinger in Columbus history.

Oscar Mercado also had a good game, going 2-5 with a home run and Eric Haase blasted his ninth home run of the season, which is tops in the Tribe organization by a wide margin.

Akron RubberDucks 4, Reading Fightin Phils 6 (F/9)

Box Score · RubberDucks fall to 13-18

Akron couldn’t get anything going offensively, getting shut out on six hits. Li Jen Chu had two of the hits with a double while Daniel Johnson went 1-3 with a hit by pitch and a stolen base and that was it for top offensive performers.

Tanner Tully pitched well, allowing one run on four hits in 6.0 quality innings while striking out three and walking one.

Lynchburg Hillcats 10, Winston-Salem Dash 6

Box Score · Hillcats improve to 16-15

The Lynchburg bats woke up for this game as surprisingly every Hillcat except for leadoff hitter Steven Kwan had a hit.

Wilbis Santiago led the way, going 3-5 with a double. Oscar Gonzalez, Mike Rivera and Austen Wade all had two hits with a double

Nolan Jones and Luke Wakamatsu both reached base safely three times, going 1-3 with a pair of walks. Wakamatsu’s hit was a double.

Starting pitcher Justin Garza wasn’t very effective, allowing four runs on nine hits in 5.0 innings while striking out four and walking one. Reliever Robert Broom allowed his first run of the season in two one-hit innings, raising his ERA to 0.59.

Lake County Captains 1, Beloit Snappers 0

Box Score · Captains improve to 18-13

Luis Oviedo continued his redemption tour on Tuesday, tossing 6.0 shutout innings on four hits while striking out a season-high nine and walking just one. Skylar Arias and Manuel Alvarez completed the shutout with three scoreless innings of relief.

Angel Lopez went 2-3 with two doubles and a walk to lead the Captains offensively. Jesse Berardi had a double and a hit by pitch, scoring the game’s only run while Ruben Cardenas went 1-3 with an RBI single and a hit by pitch.
