After a day off for the Templar Staff, we’re back with the recap!
Paul Sewald had two excellent innings, allowing 2 scoreless innings, hit the first person he faced, subsequently induced a double play. He also walked a batter but did not strike anyone out. Chris Malia profiled him, which you can read here.
Dominic Smith started out with a bang, hitting a double the other way and came around to score. He showed off his sweet swing and that he could run a little bit. He grounded out sharply to the second baseman against a lefty in his next at-bat. In his next at-bat, he struck out. He then grounded out softly against another lefty in his plate appearance in the 8th. You can read about him here.
David Roseboom looked good, confusing hitters with a deceptive delivery, and an 87-89 mile per hour fastball and solid slider. He allowed a hit to Stephen Moya and a stolen base, and struck out Victor Martinez. In his second inning, he froze Mike Gerber on a high fastball. He then got the next two batters to strike out and finished the inning on eight pitches. You can read about him here.
Luis Guillorme came in during the top of the 6th and made a nice diving grab for his first play of the afternoon. In his first at-bat, he grounded out softly to the first baseman. Guillorme in the bottom of the 8th hit a ground ball past the third baseman the baffled the left fielder for a triple and scored on a Nido liner. You can read about him here.
