That 19 runs for the Dash (9 in the 9th!) sets a franchise record for them.

Another good outing by Ian Hamilton.

Not a great AA debut for Dylan Cease. 4.2 IP, 7 H, 5 ER. But at least he did strike out 7.

Laz Rivera and Luis Gonzalez still playing a great role in being guys who play a role at one point or another for the big club.

The Dash lost two stud pitchers to start the year, lost some outfield talent and got...... better.

Probably because Gonzalez and Rivera are good one for one replacements offensively, and Battenfield could be another hidden gem.
What's the story with Battenfield? He was a pretty low pick last spring (17th round) and he's been outstanding so far this year. Stellar debut at W-S.

There was concern earlier in the season that the Sox, despite having a great farm system, had a big drop off in talent after their top 15 or so. Hopefully guys like these 3 and Booker can keep up what they've done so far this year and add to the talent depth we have.
