Albuquerque 5 @ Iowa 1 (18 innings)
Both Jake Arrieta and Jeffry Antigua had "starts" in this one. Arrieta allowed 1 in 6, fanning 9. Antigua allowed none in 6, but only struck one out. Offensively, scoring 1 run in 18 innings is clearly not good for the stat line. Ty Wright did go 2-6 with 2 walks, though. Logan Watkins doubled, as did Junior Lake.
Zeke DeVoss had a Logan Watkins-day. He was 0-2 with 3 walks and an RBI. Elliot Soto was 2-4, as was Bijan Rademacher. Chadd Krist has risen, going 2-3 with a walk and a jack. Dustin Geiger was 2-3 and also got plunked. Taiwan Easterling saw his average fall to .199 with a 0-2 day, but he did walk twice. His line reads .199/.279/.292 on the season.
Gioskar Amaya is on the comeback trail. He doubled and singled twice, also drawing a walk. His average now stands at .265. However, Amaya was also picked off, caught stealing, and had an error. Albert Almora had his worst day of the year so far, going 0-5. Dan Vogelbach was 2-4. Carlos Escobar had a 2-run homer in the 4th, the only offense of the day.
Rob Zastryzny started this game and went 2 innings. He didn't allow a run (and hasn't yet), striking out 2. Sam Wilson, 8th round pick this year, went 2 innings and was even more dominant. 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 SO. Zachary Godley (10th round) also went 2 and allowed none, as did Scott Frazier (6th round). Matt Iannazzo had the save.
1-4 batters: 8 hits. 5-9 batters, 0 hits.
Josh Vitters!!! (0-3, 2 SO)
I'd like to take a moment and wonder aloud why my man Carlos Martinez-Pumarino hasn't been used since the 4th of July. Come on, Boise. Do the right thing.
