Herbert Iser had two hits including a RBI double. Aldrem Corredor had two hits, two RBIs and scored a run. McCarthy Tatum had two hits.
Andrew Painter used what appeared to be a four pitch mix - got quite a few punch outs on an what looked to me like an 80-82 mph curve ball, also threw a slider, change and fastball that ranged 95 to 99 mph. Center fielder Johan Rojas cruised to catch a hard liner for the final out of the 7th inning - it was Painter’s longest outing at the AA level.
