Cleveland ACL affiliate wins slugfest as 2020 prep picks Isaiah Greene, Milan Tolentino, and Carson Tucker all homer

Cleveland minor league recap for July 6, 2021

Cleveland ACL Team 10, ACL White Sox 8

Box Score · Indians improve to 3-2

Renamed the “ACL Indians” for the Arizona Complex League, Cleveland’s U.S.-based rookie affiliate moved back over .500 by playing home run derby Monday, and it was a game of firsts.

Cleveland’s 2020 first-round pick Carson Tucker went 2-3, blasting his first professional home run and also walking and stealing a base.

Milan Tolentino, a fourth-round pick in 2020, blasted the second home run of his career already, going 2-4 at the dish.

Isaiah Greene, the Mets’ second-round pick in 2020, who was one of the returns in the Francisco Lindor trade, also homered, going 1-4 with a walk, while 19-year-old Dayan Frias went 2-3 with his first professional home run and a pair of walks. Junior Sanquintin also doubled and walked.

The pitching wasn’t much to write home about, but 2019 37th round pick Jacob Forrester held down the fort with a pair of strikeouts in the ninth inning to earn the save.

All other teams had scheduled days off.
