SS-Jonathan Villar went 3x4 with 3R/1RBI and 2 SB. CF-Brandon Barnes was 3x5 with 2 2B and 1RBI. RF-Adam Bailey went 2x5 with 1 2B and 3RBI. 3B-Brandon Wikoff was 2x4 with 1 2B, 2R/2RBI and 1 SB. As mentioned in last weeks live chat, Wikoff is making a case for consideration as a solid utility prospect. He’s spent meaning full time this year at 2B, 3B, and SS, while hitting .308/.397/.355. He doesn’t show much power, but think Jeff Keppinger if he took walks instead of hitting doubles and you’ve got a good picture of Wikoff.
