Stephen Strasburg was Tremendous in Sunday’s MiLB Recap

Class-A Fredericksburg “FredNats” Nationals

Stephen Strasburg made his second rehab start in Fredericksburg and he was dominant. He tossed five hitless innings while surrendering one walk and sitting down six. Stras had all of his pitches working and looked the best he has in a while. Sammy Infante and Leandro Emiliani were the offense today as they both had two homer days. In the end that amounted to seven runs. FredNats win 7-4.

High-A Wilmington Blue Rocks

Jose Ferrer made his first High-A appearance following a dominant stretch in Fredericksburg and threw a clean inning. The rest of the pitching staff (besides Tyler Yankosky) was not great. Gage Canning was the hitter of the day for Wilmington, tallying two hits and a home run. Unfortunately the rest of the lineup didn’t really show up and they lost 6-4.

Double-A Harrisburg Senators

The Senators offense managed three runs heading into the bottom of the 9th to put them within one run (4-3). A one out double from Wilson Garcia following by a Justin Connell walk put the winning run on base. Jake Alu pinch hit with runners on first and third and smoked a double down the right field line, Connell raced around third to score the winning run for their second walk-off in as many days! Sens win 5-4.

Triple-A Rochester Red Wings

Logan Verrett managed to limit damage – only allowing two hits, but surrendering seven hits in five innings. The bullpen was lights out and the staff combined to allow only three runs. Josh Palacios went 3-4 with a double and two RBI, Tres Barrera hit a homer, and that would be more than enough offense to bets the Mets. Wings win 7-3

Farm System final notes 🎶

The Nats’ minor league system had quite a night – winning three of four. Strasburg is making great progress, now we wait to see how he felt after throwing almost 60 pitches.
