Final Score: Drive 11, Augusta GreenJackets 5

Notable Pitchers:

Jamie Callahan (3 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 K)

Notable Position Players:

Michael Chavis (2-5, SB, K)

Rafael Devers (3-4, 2B)

Javier Guerra (3-5, HR, K)

  • Guerra continues his breakout season and, more specifically, his torrid recent stretch. In his last 10 games, he has gone 20-42 (.476) with 4 home runs, and he’s now up to .305/.355/.519 on the season. This is particularly remarkable coming from a 19-year old defense-first shortstop who had previously not gotten great reviews with the bat. We’ll have to hope he keeps this up as he advances through the organization.

Nick Longhi (4-5, 2B, 3B, K)

  • Longhi is a more unheralded prospect, but he still has some projection and he turned in a huge game yesterday. After that big performance, the 19-year old is slashing .296/.355/.407 and is certainly making more out of his career than your average 30th round pick.

Yoan Moncada (2-5, 2B, K)
