10/3/21 : Minor League Roundup
Worcester 10 Lehigh Valley 1
Darick Hall had two hits and a walk including a laser shot double off the right field wall that may have been the hardest hit ball we’ve seen all season, it was a rocket 🚀. He scored Jorge Bonifacio ( doubled ) in the second inning with a single.
Multiple players shared the same bat during the game, somewhat of a tradition for the last game of the season.
Worcester 7 Lehigh Valley 0
The Iron Pigs were held hitless till Nick Maton singled to lead off the ninth inning. It was their only hit of the game.
Mauricio Llovera started and pitched four scoreless frames ( 1 H, 2 BB, 4 K’s ) … four relievers followed.

Season Summary :
Other than Fall Instructs for the next couple of weeks the minor league events for the year are now over. Thanks to those who followed along with me on the nightly game recaps, standouts of the week reports, player analysis and monthly reviews.
While it was a down year in regards to wins we did have a Division Championship team in the Dominican Summer League and I promise you there are multiple players in the minor league system that will be major leaguers in the seasons to come. It’s not as dire as some may believe. There’s certainly work to do in structure, communication, consistency, trust and approach but it’s not insurmountable from this fan’s view. Whatever is needed we are willing to help, support and push for success.
Thanks to all the broadcast crews we listened to this season, made the games fun and enjoyable to watch/listen regardless of the outcome.
Everyday is a good day, here’s to building success … Happy Day, Happy Baseball ⚾️
