A couple rainouts and doubleheaders to catch up on, so today's recap will be a tad crowded.
Alfredo Figaro had a pretty good start- he went 6 innings giving up 2 runs (one earned) on 6 hits (including a homer), 3 walks and 5 strikeouts. Not the prettiest game, but good enough on most nights. Scot Drucker had a decent relief appearance too- a solo homer represented one of three hits surrendered and the only run. Drucker also had 4 strikeouts in his 3 innings of work. The offense was disappointing. Ryan Strieby was 1-4 with a homer.
The Curve took Brooks Brown to the woodshed during his spot start. In 2 innings, Brown surrendered 7 runs (5 earned) on 7 hits, a walk and 2 strikeouts. Jay Voss was the stopper here, going 4 innings and only giving up 1 unearned run on 7 hits, a walk and 4 strikeouts. Michael Bertram was 2-4 with a double.
Deja vu time. This time it was Ramon Garcia making the spot start and getting lit up- 5 earned runs allowed in 4 innings of work on 8 hits (including a homer) and a walk with no strikeouts. Zach Simons deserves credit for going 2 innings, giving up 1 hit and striking out 3. Jeff Kunkel was 1-3 with a triple.
Mark Sorensen went 6.1 innings and surrendered 5 runs (4 earned) on 10 hits (including a homer), a walk and 3 strikeouts. Miguel Mejia went 2.2 hitless innings, striking out 3. Brent Wyatt was 2-4 with a triple and a walk, Billy Nowlin was 2-5 with a double and Kody Kaiser and Rawley Bishop both had 2 hit nights- Kaiser also had a walk.
I can't figure out whether Saturday's game was rained out or just moved, but this is the end of Friday's suspended game. West Michigan won in a bullpen start- kudos go to Kenny Faulk for going 2.1 innings, allowing 1 run on 3 hits and 2 walks with 4 strikeouts. He picked up the save, so he gets the nod. The offense was great tonight (at least for one club). Michael Rockett was 2-5 with a triple, Alexis Espinosa was 2-4 with a double and Eric Roof was 2-5 with a double.
