Short Season A Lowell Spinners

Final Score: Williamsport Crosscutters 6, Spinners 5

Notable Position Players:

Victor Acosta (0-1)

Luis Alexander Basabe (2-4, 3B, BB, SB)

  • Despite being an unheralded signing out of Venezuela, Basabe has impressed at every level in the low minors and is turning in a great year in Lowell. The athletic 18-year old is slashing .269/.342/.485 with 6 homers and 11 stolen bases, showing the speed and projectable power that could make him an interesting prospect down the line. He’s not there yet but another strong performance a little up the chain could make him a legitimate prospect for the Red Sox.

Andrew Benintendi (1-4, BB)

Mitchell Gunsolus (0-2, 2 K)

Tate Matheny (1-4, K)

Josh Ockimey (2-3, CS, BB, K)

Austin Rei (1-4, K)

Kyri Washington (1-4, SB, 2 K)
