Wil Myers went 0-3 with a walk and a strikeout. He led off the 8th with a fly ball to deep center that looked like it could have been his first AAA home run, but fell a bit short.
There really wasn’t much offense of which to speak. Tony Abreu tripled in the 8th, but was stranded.
On the other side of the ball, Mike Montgomery was serviceable, but not dominant. He threw 6 innings with three walks and four strikeouts. He gave up three runs, all on a homer in the 2nd by SLC CF Matt Long.
Francisley Bueno continued his fantastic season with a two-inning outing. He allowed no hits and no walks, and struck out four Bees. Coming into tonight, Bueno had struck out a little more than a batter per inning.
A special birthday shoutout goes to current Bee and former O-Royal Ed Lucas, who turned 30. For an idea as to why Lucas is one of my favorite people in baseball, check out the answers he gave me when I interviewed him about life in the minors a couple years ago. (His interview is about halfway down the page.)
good night from Werner Park…Ryan Verdugo starts tomorrow for hopefully one of the last times as a Storm Chaser. It’s getting to be time to see what he can do in the Bigs, no?
