Player of the Day

Tuesday, July 16th POD goes to The Canadians pitching staff

 

Luis Quinones (see pitching line above) threw 35 of his 55 pitches for strikes, collecting 4 groundball outs and 1 flyball out. He struck out the first two batters he faced to start the game before allowing a double but got a flyball to end the frame. He went 1-2-3 in the 2nd inning. The 22-yr-old RHP K’d two batters and walked two in the 3rd inning but got a groundball to SS to end the threat. He finished strong with a 1-2-3 4th inning, all on groundball outs, requiring just 5 pitches.

In 5 games, 8.1IP, the 2019 34th round selection owns a 0.00ERA with 7 walks and 10K for the C’s.

 

William Gaston allowed 3 hits, issued 3 walks while striking 3 over 4 innings. He threw 37 of his 64 pitches for strikes, getting 3 groundball outs and 2 flyball outs. Gaston gave up a leadoff single and a walk in his 1st inning of work but a double play got him out of the inning. He issued two more walks in the 6th but was helped out by a double play again. The 7th started with a double but Gaston needed just 8 pitches to retire the side. All of Gaston’s K’s came in the 8th inning but he did allow another base runner with a one-out single.

 

The 23-yr-old RHP out of La Habana, Cuba owns a record of 1-2 with a 3.04ERA. He has issued 19 walks and allowed 17 hits in 23.2IP for a 1.52WHIP while striking out 21 batters.

 

Parker Caracci, 2019 21st round selection, allowed a leadoff in the 9th which he erased with a groundball to Luis De Los Santos for a double play. He allowed another single but got another groundball to end the game.

 

The 22-yr-old RHP has appeared in 9 games for the C’s with a 0-1 record and 4.22ERA. He has 11 strikeouts, 6 walks, and a 1.88WHIP.
