Cole Sulser (Mahoning Valley - Game 1, SP) - W (3-2), 6 IP, 1 H, 10 K.

 It was a very short night in the Indians' organization (only two games, and it would have been only one if the Scrappers had not been rained out last night), but there was still a far-and-away obvious choice for feature status.  Cole Sulser went six perfect innings with 10 strikeouts before giving up a hit to start the seventh (which was the final inning as this was the opener of a doubleheader) and being pulled from the game.  This performance lowered his season ERA to 1.83.  That's not only his impressive stat on the year as he also has a 6.67 K:BB ratio and an 0.85 WHIP.  Not bad for a 25th round draft pick.

  • Kerry Doane (Mahoning Valley - Game 1, CP) - S (2), 1 IP, perfect - Following the leadoff hit, Doane put away the Doubledays one-two-three to pick up his second save of the season.  These late-season Scrappers pitching performances have me excited for the start of the 2014 season in Eastlake.
  • Joel Mejia (Mahoning Valley - Game 2, CF) - 2-4, 1 2B, 1 K - The only multi-hit effort of either game for the Scrappers tonight.
  • Claudio Bautista (Mahoning Valley - Game 2, 2B) - 1-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 3 K, 1 E - Very rarely is one man responsible for all of the runs in a game where both teams score, but that was the case for Claudio Bautista tonight.  His fourth-inning homer to left-center provided the Scrappers' only run while his throwing error comtinued the second inning and allowed the Auburn Doubledays to score three unearned runs and win 3-1.  Throw in a hat trick in a seven-inning game and this performance definitely falls in the "highly unusual" category.
  • Kenny Matthews (Mahoning Valley - Game 2, SP) - L (0-3), 4 H, 3 R (all unearned), 2 BB, 2 K, 1 WP - Matthews falls victim to the Scrappers' persistent error issues.
  • Alexis Paredes (Mahoning Valley - Game 2, RP) - 2 IP, perfect - Paredes' perfect outing goes to waste due to a poor effort by the poition players both at the plate and in the field.
