Last night’s doubleheader doubleheader came to a head with Akron’s win over Erie

Cleveland minor league recap for June 5, 2021

Columbus Clippers 3, Indianapolis 10 (Game 1)
Columbus Clippers 2, Indianapolis 5 (Game 2)

Box Score · Clippers fall to 9-18

I believe Bobby Bradley, washed clean by the rainout, showed up ready to apply some new knowledge. He finished 3-for-3 in the first game and homered in the second. He is hitting a buck ninety-six but his OPS is up to .751. A masher is a very important guy. He hits certain dingers.

What, praytell, sir, is a “certain dinger”? It’s the latest craze. The ladies love it!

Anyway, Connor Marabell doubled, Oscar Mercado swiped a bag, Andres Gimenez hit an RBI single in the first game. Mercado owned the second game from the leadoff spot as he doubled, homered, and singled.

Matt Koch fell behind early and fell apart in the fourth inning of game one, finishing with three innings pitched and six allowed. In game two, it was Heath Filmyer who struggled and allowed five.

Akron RubberDucks 2, Erie SeaWolves 8 (Game 1)
Akron RubberDucks 6, Erie Seawolves 0 (Game 2)

Box Score - RubberDucks fall to 16-9

In game one, Shane McCarthy bombed! So did George Carlin on occasion. We move on or we don’t.

He pitched four, giving up five hits and seven runs. Six of these were earned, scattered in with three walks and strikeouts apiece. McCarthy ended 2019 with a promotion to Old Lake County, and so single outings matter much less to me than his career 3.53 K/BB.

Reliever Dakody Clemmer allowed one run in as many innings pitched. Sylar Arias struck out three in two scoreless.

At the plate, everyone not named Alex Call struggled. He went 2-for-3 with two jacks.

In game two, the RubberDucks moved on quickly. They scored in every inning but the second and the fifth, adding three more in the bottom of the sixth for good measure. This is the way.

Lake County Captains 8, Dayton Dragons

Box Score · Captains improve to 14-14

Despite owning a four-run lead the Captains decided to score four runs in the eighth inning, anyway. Why not? They’re like the only guys that got to play one.

Dayton took similar advantage in the top of the ninth, but that only leveled off the previous half-inning’s debauchery.

They were already wasted, man.

Lynchburg Hillcats 0, Salem Red Sox 2

Box Score · Hillcats fall to 15-12

The Hillcats lost a well-played game. Salem happened to go 2-for-4 with RISP, and Lynchburg went 0-for-3. That’s the entire difference.
