Here are the box scores from the games against the Dodgers affiliates on Sunday.
Some quick thoughts:
- Not much offense from any of the Indians affiliates yesterday. Only two players had multiple hits in their game, that being third baseman Jared Goedert who went 2-for-3 with a 2B and RBI, and outfielder Tim Fedroff who went 2-for-4 with a 2B.
- LHP Jeremy Sowers pitched in the Columbus game yesterday, going 3 innings and allowed 1 run on 3 hits, 2 walks and 2 strikeouts. He is expected to open the season on the disabled list.
- Two other big league camp pithers left-hander Aaron Laffey and right-hander Hector Ambriz came down and pitched for Columbus. Laffey was his usual solid self going 2 innings and allowing 1 run on 3 H, no walks, and had 1 strikeout while Ambriz threw a shutout-hitless inning.
- RHP Josh Judy went 2 shutout innings allowing 2 hits, no walks and had 3 strikeouts. He has a good chance to open the season in the Columbus bullpen, though he may still open at Akron and then move quickly to Columbus sometime in May if things go right.
- RHP Jeanmar Gomez went 4 innings and allowed 1 run on 4 hits, 1 walk and had 5 strikeouts. He threw 72 pitches in those four innings, so was kind of erratic (8 first pitch strikes in 18 batters). RHP Frank Herrman followed him with 2 good shutout innings allowing 1 hit, no walks and had 2 strikeouts.
- RHP Trey Haley struggled in his outing needing 64 pitches to go 3.2 innings where he allowed 3 runs on 6 hits, 2 walks and had 2 strikeouts. He was up to 95 MPH, but only threw 9 first pitch strikes to 19 batters. RHP Joey Mahalic followed him later in the game and he struggled even more needing 63 pitches to go 3.1 innings and allowed 7 runs on 4 hits, 4 walks, and had 4 strikeouts.
- LHP Francisco Jimenez (pictured) had a rare rough outing going 2 innings and allowing 3 runs on 3 hits, 2 walks and had 3 strikeouts.
