Prospect Of The Game:

Second Baseman Nate Mondou

(4 for 5 / 2 Triples / Double / Walk / 2 RBIs)

The Ports prevailed for the third straight night with the help of hot-hitting second baseman Nate Mondou on Friday. Last year’s 13th-round draft pick for the A’s collected 4 hits, including 2 triples and a double, while also drawing a walk and driving in a pair of runs. The 22-year-old is now 8 for 12 with 3 walks, 3 extra-base hits and 5 RBIs over his last 3 games and is batting .386 since being promoted to the Ports early last week. Shortstop Eli White walked and hit a 2-run homer, while catcher Argenis Raga singled, doubled and drove in a run. 23-year-old Cuban RHP Norge Ruiz looked strong in his second start for Stockton, allowing just 1 run over 6 innings of work to earn his 1st win, while RHP Brandon Bailey gave up 1 run in 3 innings of relief to pick up the save for the Ports.

HR – Pinder 2 (12), Maxwell 2 (9), Alcantara (7)

Prospect Of The Game:

Catcher Bruce Maxwell

(5 for 5 / 2 Home Runs / 6 RBIs)

Whether it’s due to Ryon Healy’s recent promotion to Oakland or something in the water in El Paso, a number of Nashville’s position players have appeared to be pretty inspired at the plate lately. And no one has been hotter than catcher Bruce Maxwell. The backstop had a career day on Saturday, collecting 5 hits, including a pair of home runs, while driving in 6 runs for the Sounds. And Maxwell is now 10 for 14 with 4 home runs and 10 RBIs in the first three games of Nashville’s four-game series in El Paso. Shortstop Chad Pinder also swatted a pair of home runs on Saturday, while left fielder Arismendy Alcantara doubled twice and homered, and center fielder Jaycob Brugman had 4 hits and drove in 3 runs for Nashville. Starter Zach Neal allowed 3 runs over 5 innings of work to pick up the win as the Sounds won their fourth straight on Saturday.

Prospect Of The Game:

Designated Hitter Josh Rodriguez

(1 for 4 / Walk / Grand Slam)

A 1st inning grand slam off the bat of designated hitter Josh Rodriguez would give Midland more than they would need to prevail over Arkansas on Monday night. Rodriguez would later walk and score in the 5th, while second baseman Yairo Munoz immediately followed Rodriguez’s 1st inning grand slam with a solo shot of his own and also singled and scored in the 5th. Shortstop Franklin Barreto had 2 hits, including a double, drove in a pair and scored twice, and right fielder Tyler Marincov and left fielder J.P. Sportman each singled, doubled and drove in a run for the RockHounds. Starter Raul Alcantara returned from the disabled list and allowed 2 runs in 4 2/3 innings of work, while RHP Trey Cochran-Gill tossed 2 1/3 scoreless innings in relief to earn his 3rd win for Midland. And in addition to Alcantara’s return from the disabled list, RHP Chris Jensen and LHP Brandon Mann were both reassigned to the RockHounds on Monday.

(6 IP / 3 H / 0 ER / 1 BB / 3 K / Win)

RHP Heath Bowers turned in his second straight strong start for the Lake Monsters, allowing just 3 hits over 6 shutout innings to earn his 1st win on Wednesday. And last year’s 24th-round draft pick for the A’s has now failed to allow an earned run in his first two starts of the season. RHP Dustin Driver gave up 2 runs, 1 earned, in 2 innings of relief, and RHP Jordan Schwartz struck out all three batters he faced in the 9th to notch his 1st career save. First baseman Miguel Mercedes smashed his 2nd home run, a 3-run shot in the 3rd, while right fielder Jhonny Rodriguez had 3 hits, including a double, and drove in a run in the 9th. A number of the A’s 2016 draft picks made their Vermont debuts on Wednesday. 3rd-round catcher Sean Murphy went 0 for 5 with 3 strikeouts, while 5th-round third baseman JaVon Shelby singled, doubled, walked, stole a base and scored twice. 11th-round shortstop Eli White singled in 2 at-bats, and 13th-round second baseman Nate Mondou, serving as the designated hitter for the night, went 0 for 4 and drove in a run on a groundout. The quartet were all added to the Lake Monsters roster on Wednesday, while infielder Javier Godard was sent to the Arizona League A’s… Vermont Lake Monsters Roster
