Final Score: West Virginia Black Bears 12, Spinners 3

Notable Pitchers:

Jose Almonte (1.1 IP, 0 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 5 BB, K)

Matt Kent (4.1 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 ER, BB, 4 K)

Notable Position Players:

Victor Acosta (0-4, K)

Luis Alexander Basabe (0-3, BB, K, SB)

Andrew Benintendi (0-2, BB)

  • After performing well in his first few games with the Spinners, Benintendi has tailed off a bit recently. Through his first six games in the organization, he’s hitting just .227/.333/.364 with a homer and a steal. Boston’s first-round pick will obviously improve as he acclimates to life in professional baseball and it’s too early to make any judgements, though.

Mitchell Gunsolus (1-4, K)

Tate Matheny (1-2, K)

Josh Ockimey (1-4, 2 K)

Tucker Tubbs (1-4, 2B)
