Low-A Greenville Drive

Final Score: Asheville Tourists 7, Drive 4

Notable Pitchers:

Jalen Beeks (6.2 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 4 R, 3 BB, 2 K)

Notable Position Players:

Michael Chavis (3-5, 2B, K)

Javier Guerra (4-5, HR, CS)

  • Guerra has been on a hot streak at the plate and he turns in another big game here. A defense-first shortstop, nobody expected Guerra to ever hit much, but he’s been excellent at the plate with the Drive and even has shown remarkable power for a 19-year old. Through 67 games this season, he has hit .287/.338/.480 and should enter the ranks of Boston’s elite prospects before long.
