Xavier Cedeno went 5 IP allowing 2H/1ER with 6K:1BB. The RedHawks pitchers only gave up 4 hits all game, it’s a shame it happened in a game where the opposing pitchers only gave up 1.
That 1 hit was an important one for personal milestones, though. SS-Anderson Hernandez continued his hitting streak, now at 29 games, by going 1x4 with a first inning single.
Man of the Match: Xavier Cedeno

The Hooks lost to the RoughRiders 6-5.
Ross Seaton looked good in this one, going 7 IP allowing 4H/2ER with 7K:0BB, throwing just 72 pitches!

Seaton’s had a rough year, but he looked better in August with a 3.00 ERA and 29K:11BB in 36 innings through 6 starts.
CF-T.J. Steele went 3x4 with 1 2B, 1 HR and 2R/2RBI. SS-Jonathan Villar was 2x5 with 1 SB.
