A few highlights from last night’s 10-1 Altoona win, plus the walk-off winner in extra innings for Indianapolis. First off, with some nice fielding from shortstop Alen Hanson. It looks like Jarek Cunningham was going to make the short hop pick and throw, but the ball gets by him and Hanson was there to make the play and a strong, accurate throw.
When a team wins 10-1, there is going to be some highlights from the bats and below, Stetson Allie and Willy Garcia provide the extra base hits. Neither is hitting for average yet, though both are showing some power. Garcia’s highlight up first, as he hits a drive into the left-center gap.
Later in the game, Stetson Allie just misses a home run and has to settle for a double.
Finally, Indianapolis won 6-5 in 11 innings last night over Louisville and Adalberto Santos provided the game winning hit, which scored Tony Sanchez from second base. Just like the Pittsburgh Pirates, last night’s Indianapolis game ended with the winning team celebrating a walk-off hit on the field. Did I mention that the Louisville Bats are the farm team of the Cincinnati Reds?
