Las Vegas Aviators (A’s) 2 vs OKC Dodgers 11
Sam Gaviglio started and pitched 5.0 scoreless innings. With 5 hits and 4 walks he navigated through lots of traffic. Dellin Betances walked two batters and 1 K, but Marshall Kasowski relieved him and gave up a 2 run double, both charged to Betances. Justin Bruihl and Bobby Wahl, 1.0 scoreless inning each.
Eddy Alvarez was the offensive star – 4-5 with 2 HRs (7), 5 RBIs.
Michael Busch – 3-5 including a double (11)
James Outman HR (1)
Justin Martin HR (17)
Tulsa Drillers 3 – Northwest Arkansas Naturals (KC) 0
4 Loons pitchers combined for a 5 hit shutout, led by Gavin Stone. Stone went the first 6 innings, but was uncharacteristically wild with 6 walks. He still recorded 8 Ks. His ERA is now at a miniscule 1.29. Nick Robertson, Guillermo Zuniga, and Jordan Leasure each pitched a scoreless inning, with Leasure getting the save (2).
Gavin Stone might have been a little too pumped for his Arkansas homecoming – he was up 98 mph, but he issued a career high 6 BBs. The last time he even had 3 BBs was over a year ago (6/26/21). That said, he still navigated things effectively:
