Marlins: JJ Bleday, OV (No. 13), Double-A Pensacola
Kameron Misner, OF (No. 13), High-A Beloit
Eury Perez, RHP (No. 22), Low-A Jupiter

Bleday hit his ninth homer and 14th double of the season on a 2v2 day on the plate in Game 1 of a double headed. The 2019 fourth overall pick added a walk, his 44th this year, and he’s now safely bottomed out in nine of his last 10 games. He hits .2550 over that range with three homers, four RBIs, and six walks.

Misner entered the scoring party a little late for Beloit, but the 23-year-old still scored the first multihomer game of his career in a 2-on-4-two RBI night. His first homer came in fourth, the Snappers were already 7-1. On his next at-bat, the sixth, he rode the first pitch he saw over the fence to extend Beloit’s lead to 9-2. Misner now has eight home runs and 32 RBIs in the season.

Perez made his eighth start of the season, allowing two or fewer hits as he hit six and not going over five scoreless innings. In 13 starts, the 6-foot-8 citizen from the Dominican Republic has thrown seven goalless games and has counted 66 strikeouts and only 17 runs through 48 innings in his first minor league season.

Indians: Bo Naylor, C (MLB # 86), Double-A Akron
Bryan Lavastida, C (# 24), Double-A Akron

In Akron’s win over Erie, two attractive prospects provided some strength. With Naylor behind the plate and Lavastida, the designated hitter, the two combined three home runs, five hits and 10 of Akrons 11 runs. Naylor, Cleveland’s No. 3 Lookout, scored for two of those long balls, the first multihomer game of his career. It was 2-1 Akron by the time the fifth inning rolled around and Naylor hit the bat with the bases loaded and two failed. The 21-year-old started a 3-2 pitch late into the night for a Grand Slam. Erie fought his way back to make it a 6-4 game, but Naylor helped push the game out of reach with a two-time homer in seventh place to crack his career in RBIs and close the RubberDucks 11-4 to enhance.

The other half of the equation was Lavastida, who started things for Akron on his Double-A debut with an RBI singles at the top of the first, giving his team an early 1-0 lead. His big moment, however, came in that seventh inning when he crushed a three-time homer to extend Akron’s lead to five. The 22-year-old has had a fantastic season slicing 0.312 / 0.404 / 0.488 with more RBIs (35) than strikeouts (32) and 26 walks in 49 games on two levels. Statistics on Indians »
