Play By Play

1st inning

1)   LF Kirk Nieuwenhuis popped out down the 3B line – the 3B kept backing up and nearly fell down and missed it. 5/P5LD
2)   2B Eric Campbell walked on four pitches.
3)   SS Wilmer Flores walked on a full count.
4)   1B Brandon Allen walked on a full count. Bases loaded.

Totals: R, 4 BB, 3 LOBsters
1)    CF Endy Chavez hit a medium two-hopper right at Wilmer that he was waiting to back hand and make a quick throw. It was basically the same set up he made his last two throwing errors on, with a much cleaner throw, definitely seen some re-sharpening of his game at SS. 63/G6
2)   SS Chris Taylor walked.
*Pick off attempt gets by Allen at 1B, Taylor speeds around to 3B. E1
3)   2B Nick Franklin struck out looking at a 94 MPH fastball at the knees (also mentioned him at 92 MPH in the at-bat)

2)   RF Cesar Puello walked.
3)   Nieuwenhuis popped out to Montero on the infield. Montero actually lost the ball and it fell in, but the infield fly rule had been called.
4)   Campbell struck out looking at an off speed pitch on the outside corner.
5)   Flores popped out behind the SS. 6/P7S
Totals: H, BB, SO, 2 LOBsters
1)   Ty Kelly struck out swinging on what appeared to be a breaking ball at the bottom of the zone – 3 pitches.
2)   Jabari Blash pulled a weak chopper down the 3B line that was handled cleanly by Lutz, but his throw pulled Allen off the bag at 1B for an infield single. S5/G5
*Blash steals 2B and goes to 3B as the throw bounced under the glove of Flores, who didn’t realize he didn’t have the ball. E2
3)   Humberto Quintero hit a sac fly to CF.
4)   Leury Bonilla pulled a weak grounder up the 3B line and beat out the throw to 1B. S5/G5S
5)   Xavier Avery flied out to deep LF. It was caught by Nieuwenhuis a step before running into the LF wall at full speed. What a catch, looked like his elbow hit the wall pretty hard though. 7/F7D (at ~54 minutes)
Totals: R, 2 H, SF, SO, LOBster, 23 pitches

(Substitution: Jeff Walters pitching for Las Vegas)
3)   Franklin lined one off the wall in deep left-center field wall for an RBI single – the runners had to hold because of M∂D’s defensive reputation in CF, as it looked like he was going to track it down before running out of room. S7/L78D
4)   Montero walked.
5)   Kelly launched one off the wall in CF (a little to the right of where the wall is 425 feet from home plate – it isn’t just an arc in CF) for a 2R double. Montero was tagged out at home on his back on a nice play from Centeno. 2B8/F8D
