The Waikiki BeachBoys lost in an ugly gameand fell back into a division tie with the Sharks.
Damon Sublett played 2B and went 2-for-5, with 2 RBI and 2 runs scored. Austin Romine (DH) was hitless with a walk.
Since it's a slow Sunday with no AFL games and the BeachBoys playing an afternoon game, it might be a good time to catch up with the Yankees playing winterball.
Arizona Fall League:
Phil Hughes is having an up and down season at Arizona Fall League. The main purpose is to get innings, and Hughes has logged 12.2 so far.
Jeff Marquez is a reliever, no, a starter for the Javelinas. A mixed bag for Marquez, who had 4 bullpen appearances before converting to a starter. After a rough first start, Marquez had a much better showing in his second start.
Humberto Sanchez is probably wishing he were anywhere but Arizona. He's got a whopping BAA of .433 and a WHIP of 3.11. Definitely a character-building opportunity.
Kevin Whelan is probably wishing he could stay in Arizona. He's having a great AFL season, allowing 1 earned run in 6 appearances. Whelan has pitched to a sparkling 0.90 ERA out of the bullpen.
Juan Miranda is in the midst of an 0-for-14 slump, but is still carrying a .333 batting average, thanks to his torrid start in the AFL.
Kevin Russo is quite the jack-of-all-trades. Playing all over the infield and out in left field, Russo is hitting .358 with a homerun and 3 stolen bases. There is one bad trend, though. Russo has struck out 9 times in the last 4 games (15 total for the season).
Austin Jackson started off hot in Arizona, but has cooled off a bit. One bright spot? He really likes hitting lefties. Why are 75% of Jackson's at-bats against righties, Mr. Manager?
Hawaii Winter Baseball:
Jeremy Bleich had a rough start in winter ball, but has bounced back, allowing just 2 runs over his last 3 starts (19.2 innings). Bleich's is dramatically trending down in walks and up in strikeouts, striking out 8 in his last outing.
Andrew Brackman is finally getting his sea legs in Hawaii. He's allowed just 2 earned runs over his last 2 starts, earning wins in both to improve to 3-3.
Austin Romine is back after missing two weeks due to being hit by a pitch.
Damon Sublett was also out for an extended period, but is doing well in the infield. Sublett is batting .294 with 15 RBI.
Justin Christian is playing outfield for the Caneros de los Mochis. He's hitting .238 with 7 stolen bases (0 CS).
Oneli Perez is a relief pitcher for the Tigres del Licey. He had one rough outing, but hasn't allowed a run in the other 5 appearances.
Francisco Cervelli is catching for the Cardenales de Lara. His bat hasn't quite shown up yet, but Cervelli has hit a homerun and scored 3 runs.
