BOXSCORE

Players of the Day – Angelo Songco, 1B, Chris Reed, LHP, Leon Landry, OF and Angel Sanchez, RHP

That’s right, 4. Songco missed about a week and came back yesterday, going 0 for 4. Today he was much better, hitting 2 doubles to give him 40 on the season and added his 4th triple. He even stole a base. Gelo now has 69 extra base hits on the year, just 1 behind Alfredo Silverio who tripled today. His walks have plummeted this month, likely because he’s hitting .369, but he’ll need to focus on drawing more once the average lowers.

The biggest debut of the year for the Dodgers’ minor league system occurred tonight and it didn’t disappoint. 2011 first round pick Chris Reed pitched for the club in a game for the first time and did well, allowing just one hit in 2 innings. His fastball touched 96, according to his pitching coach and he showed more than just pure velocity. He recorded his first strikeout on a slider, then threw three changeups in a row to record his second K. I’m very interested to see what happens to his velocity next year when he spends a full season starting. If it stays up, the Dodgers could have another very valuable arm on their hands.

Moving on to the Loons, Leon Landry has been on fire lately. He has 9 hits in his last 12 at bats and is batting .337 in August. He’s stolen 25 bases this season, tho he’s been caught 12 times. While Landry has had a down season, it would be great to see him end it on a high note. So far, so good.

And finally, Angel Sanchez had one of his best starts of the year tonight, going 7 strong innings in the Loons’ win. His fastball was sitting at 93mph and he touched 94. He also showed two quality offspeed pitches that should develop into consistent plus offerings in time. His ERA is now just a point behind teammate Garrett Gould’s and would rank 4th in the league if he qualified. Definitely proving himself to be a top prospect.
