Daysbel had his best week on the mound with only one run allowed over four innings, but he continued to struggle to miss bats with only one strikeout. Hernandez looked strong in a scoreless game one, striking out a batter and walking one over two hitless innings. Game two was also not entirely his fault, though still he did allowed three hits and a walk over two innings. After leading off his start with a walk he was able to force a double play, then got a ground out to end the seventh inning. He allowed a home run in the eighth inning, but it came on the inside the parker that was helped along by an injury to Trey Harris and Hernandez otherwise did not allow any runs. Still, Hernandez has only four strikeouts to nine walks over 9 1⁄3 innings this fall, making this a forgettable month for him and a bit disappointing after he looked so effective during the season.

Connor Johnstone had his most dominant start of the fall in his one game, striking out by far his high for the fall, but it wasn’t really his most effective as he allowed three runs over five innings. A solo home run off of Johnstone in the fifth was the biggest hit he allowed and the first home run he has allowed since his opening start. The uptick in strikeouts over his past couple of outings has been promising as those two have encompassed eight innings with only one walk and eleven strikeouts recorded. For Johnstone in the start this week there wasn’t any particular inning that was poor, but four of the five hits against him were extra base hits and so he allowed runs in the second, fourth, and fifth innings. Johnstone had six ground ball outs to two fly outs.

It was another week of Bradley Roney being Bradley Roney, as he was nearly untouchable outside of the walks he allowed. In the opening game he pitched he allowed two out them, but was able to escape with no damage as he held Salt River hitless over 1 1⁄3 innings. He pitched the same amount in his second game, this time cutting it to one walk while striking out three batters. Roney allowed all three hits this fall in his second outing and since has gone 5 2⁄3 innings with no hits allowed.

Brandon White showed up in the first game he played during this week. closing out the Scorpions comeback win to earn his first save of the fall. In his second appearance he had less success than this. After getting through an inning unscathed he was brought out for a multi inning outing and it went off the rails. He quickly got two outs in the inning, but after a walk White allowed three consecutive singles before being pulled from the game. White has not been particularly effective overall this fall with a lot of walks and balls in play against him.

After being a late sub in his first game Dean went 0-2 at the plate, and then the third game of the week saw him go 0-3 at the plate. He also came in a fourth game as a late defensive sub for Trey Harris.

Trey Harris had a nice week at the plate and was the best Braves hitter again, hitting safely in three of his four games and putting the ball in play frequently. He opened with his best performance by getting two hits on Tuesday, but it was his walk in the eighth inning that was his biggest plate appearance. Harris walked to be the second man to reach in the inning and then came in to score the tying run in a 6-5 comeback win for Scottsdale. He doubled in his second game of the week to deliver the second run of a 2-1 win for the Scorpions and the Scorpions won each the three games that he got hits in. Harris left with an injury late in game four, and we don’t have any more information at this time.
