On The Hill :


RH Jean Cabrera - 4 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 6 K’s - 53 pitches - 35 strikes - FB - 91-94 mph, got a lot of swings and misses on curve ball ( low 80’s mph ) and changeup. Great mechanics and consistently around the plate - excellent debut - was perfect thru first three innings.


RH Eiberson Castellano - 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 4 K’s - 38 pitches - 27 strikes - 91-94 FB, low 80’s slider/curve and mid 80’s change up - also has exemplary mechanics - uses whole body albeit not as compact - big frame like Francisco Morales - we’ve been impressed since seeing him on backfields.


RH Tommy McCollum - 1 2/3 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 2 BB, 1 K - 27 pitches - 14 strikes

RH Konnor Ash - 1/3 IP - retired only batter he faced - K - 5 pitches - 3 strikes


At Bat : 8 H, 2 BB, 7 K’s


Hao Yu Lee, Marcus Lee Sang & Anthony Quirion each had two hits. Lee and Quirion doubled and Lee homered. Watching Hao Yu Lee hit in person can’t help but envision the 19 year old as a major leaguer in his future - just takes a very professional approach - gets his pitch and usually doesn’t miss it - impressive.
