Around the Farm: October 29
- Chad Huffman (1B): 0-for-4, K. Huffman and his Phoenix teammates were frustrated all day as they were shut out and held to just one hit.
- Roberto Perez (C): 0-for-2, BB. The Desert Dogs had just three baserunners all game via 2 walks and a hit, and Perez had one of the walks.
- Tyler Sturdevant (RP): 1.0 IP, 3 H, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K. Sturdevant allowed three hits but escaped in his one inning of work without allowing a run. He’s had a good showing so far in the AFL in 5 games (6.1 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 H).
- Cory Burns (RP): 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K. Burns has a 6.30 ERA, but is the byproduct of a bad 2-game stretch where he allowed 6 earned runs in 2.0 innings. In his last 2 outings he has not allowed a run and has 6 strikeouts in 3.0 innings.
- Jerad Head (RF, Tigres del Licey): 1-for-4, K. Head is getting a chance to play every day this fall and is hitting .310 in 12 games.
- Ezequiel Carrera (CF, Navegantes del Magellanes): 2-for-5, 2 R, 2B, RBI, K. Carrera’s third game this fall and he continues to show his top of the order ability getting on base two times and scoring two times.
- Hector Rondon (RP, Leones del Caracas): 2.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R/ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 0 HR. Forget that he gave up a run. It’s great to see Rondon being stretched out to 2.1 innings and throwing 22 of his 33 pitches for strikes.
- Luis Valuena (2B, Cardenales de Lara): 0-for-4, K. Valbuena continues to be the everyday 2B for his team and has done okay this fall hitting .250/.357/.438.
