AFL Recap 10/25: Grossman’s 6th HR, Inman PITCHfx

Robbie Grossman continued his hot hitting in the Arizona Fall League today, going 1-for-4 at the plate with his sixth homer of the year.  The home run came in the third inning with one on, tying the game at 2-2 at the time.  Mesa would go on to lose 8-6 in ten innings.  Grossman’s six homers is tied for the league lead.  He also leads the league in slugging and OPS out of all batters with 50+ at-bats.

Jeff Inman pitched an inning today, his second in the AFL.  Inman saw a runner reach on a fielding error, advance to second on a stolen base, and move to third on a ground out.  Inman got the runner out at home on a fielder’s choice play at the plate, after a ground ball to third.  He finished off the inning with a ground out to second, his fourth ground out of the inning.

Inman needed just 12 pitches to get through the inning.  11 of those pitches were fastballs, and Inman was 93-96 MPH with the pitch.  He hit 93 once, on the first pitch, hit 96 once, and averaged 94.5 MPH with his fastball.  He threw one curveball a 79 MPH.

Mesa plays tomorrow at 3:35 PM EST, with Gerrit Cole taking the mound for his third AFL start.
