    Final: ACL Giants Black 7, ACL Brewers 4
    Box Score / Game Log

    Our men in Arizona jumped out to a 4-0 lead by the top of the 2nd inning, but were out-played the rest of the way, ultimately losing on a 3-run walk-off homer.

    The top offensive performers on the day were rehabbing center fielder Eduarqui Fernandez (1-for-3, double, walk, RBI, SB) and DH/INF Alexander Perez (2-for-4, RBI). They had a hand in three of the team’s four runs scored.

    Starting RHP Ryne Moore (2 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 1 BB, 2 Ks) made his 9th appearance of the season, but has yet to get back to the form which saw him promoted to High-A ball in May 2022. Hopefully he’ll recover full strength and capability over the offseason.

    Seven other pitchers saw action in relief of Moore:

    Having won the ACL Central Division with a 31-25 record, we expect the team to be back in action in a playoff semi-final against the ACL Rockies on Thursday night. Hopefully rehabbing Fernandez, SS Eric Brown Jr. (0-for-4 today) and RHP Joseph Hernandez (last pitched August 17), as well as INFs Cooper Pratt and Juan Baez (both absent today) will all be available to lead the team.

    Final: DSL Dodgers Bautista 7, DSL Brewers-1 Squad 3
    Box Score / Game Log

    Strangely, this game was far better and far worse than the final score indicates:

    • Better: 17-year old starting RHP Eric Prado (4 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 5 Ks; season ERA 1.54) dominated the 42-11 Dodgers, throwing four scoreless innings while retiring 12 of 13 batters.
    • Worse: The game was 7-0 entering the 9th inning, before the Uno young men scored three runs on four hits to narrow the final deficit.

    The loss dropped the team to a 25-27 record with only one game remaining in the DSL season.

    In relief of Prado, RHPs Gabriel Colmenarez and Oliver Camilo were rocked for seven earned runs in just 2 2/3 innings pitched.

    Offensive highlights:

    Let’s hope that center fielder Yophery Rodriguez (0-for-4 today with 1 K) and his teammates end their seasons on a strong note in tomorrow’s rematch against DSL Dodgers Bautista.

    Final: DSL Brewers-2 Squad 8, DSL Braves 0
    Box Score / Game Log

    18-year old RHP Bryan Rivera (5 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 6 Ks) and 19-year old RHP Aneuris Rodriguez (4 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 1 BB, 4 Ks) dominated the Braves, only allowing three singles and two walks in their sterling shutout. The Brewers obviously like what they see in Rivera, who started the opening game of the season and finished the game third in innings (53.0 IP) and fifth in strikeouts (63) in the 50-team DSL.

    The game was scoreless until red-hot left fielder Pedro Ibarguen (2-for-4, double, RBI) singled in a run in the bottom of the 4th inning and experienced C Eric Martinez (1-for-3, HR, walk, 2 RBIs) followed with a 2-run homer (his 5th of the year).

    But the offensive star, as he’s been all summer, was 19-year old 3B Demetrio Nadal: 4-for-5, triple, 3 RBIs, SB. This performance lifts his season batting average to .342 and OPS to 1.003. Let’s see if he’ll play in the season finale tomorrow or end the 2023 season on this note. Other solid contributions came from DH/OF Christopher Vasquez (1-for-3, double, walk) and 1B/C Roman La Torre (1-for-2, two walks).

    The Dos team’s record now sits at 22-31 and they will conclude their season with a game at Dodgers Mega tomorrow.

    We hope that you enjoy the Minor League Link Report. Enjoy Tuesday’s 6-game set, including season finales for our two Dominican Summer League teams in the morning.
