    Allan Cerda lengthens the Tortuga lead with a two-out single. An error by the Might Mussel LF, Justin Washington, allowed both runners on base (Vellojin and Marrero after BBs) to score. Daytona now leads 4-1 as we head to the bottom of the 9th.

    Brett Lockwood closes it out in boring fashion. (My most favorite type.) 'Tugas win 4-1.

    Ivan Johnson delivered the big hit and went 2-5, raising his OPS to 745. That sounds anemic, but is actually slightly above league average.

    Yes, I’d say a chance in the bigs is on deck assuming he holds serve in AAA.

    The wind must have been blowing out today in Arizona. The Reds' ACL team knocked 15 hits to go along with 6 extra base hits and 8 BBs.

    Unfortunately, the seven runs they put up were dwarfed by the little Indi-- err, Guardians' 12.

    The pitching, as you can imagine, mostly sucked eggs. Jake Gilbert pitched well in two innings of relief. 3 K's and a lone BB blemished his line.

    The bats were for real. Yassel Pino led the charge. 3 more hits and another HR (his second). He's putting up a .429 BA with an OPS north of 1.300. Fun with small samples and all that, but it's promising to see a 19-year-old hit like that. 18-year-old Andruw Salcedo is also hitting like that-- he's at a .480 BA with an OBP of .552 and an OPS of 1.352. That'll play. It is, alas, in only 25 ABs, but it's good to see at any rate.

    RECAP: Reds' minor league squads put up a 3-2 record on the night. Three starting pitching gems highlight, including yet another masterpiece from Graham Ashcraft.

    Bonus Question for the Night: Does Ashcraft deserve to be ranked inside the top 100 prospects in baseball right now? Why or why not?
