06-18-2022 Mitch White Continues to Dominate

OKC Dodgers 7 vs Reno Aces (DBacks) 0 

On the Mound 

Mitch White was absolutely brilliant.  I do not know how many people have actually visited the Reno Greater Nevada Field, and while it is a great venue, it is also a launching pad.  All Mitch White did was to pitch 6.0 scoreless innings on 3 hits.  He did not issue any walks, but recorded 4 Ks.  He threw 79 pitches (58 strikes).  He has absolutely nothing left to prove in MiLB.

Sam Gaviglio followed White and continued to master the Aces hitters.  He threw 3.0 scoreless innings, allowing only a one out 9th inning double, with 3 strikeouts.

In the 3rd, Miguel Vargas reached on an error, with Jake Lamb and Michael Busch walking to load the bases with nobody out.  Jason Martin hit a ground rule double to score 2.  Michael Busch scored on a Jacob Amaya ground out, to increase the lead to 6-0.


In the 4th, Jake Lamb hit his 2nd HR (14) of the night.
