Arizona Fall League & Dominican Winter League Recaps: 10/25


Arizona Fall League

Here are the lines for the Braves in action yesterday:

  • Tommy La Stella – 1-4, solo HR(1)
  • Kyle Kubitza – 0-2, BB, K
  • Robby Hefflinger – 0-4, 2 Ks
  • Shae Simmons – 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 K

The Scorpions winning streak was snapped with a 7-4 loss, but Tommy La Stella still enjoyed a first for him in the AFL.  LaStella blasted his first AFL homer yesterday, but failed to walk for the second game in a row, GASP!  Tommy still leads the AFL in walks and is second in OBP and OPS.  He still hasn’t struck-out yet in AFL play.

Kyle Kubitza did not start, but came into the game in the bottom of the second and recorded a walk and a strikeout in 3 plate appearances.  It was not one of Robby Hefflinger’s banner games though as he went hitless in 4 at-bats with 2 whiffs.

Shae Simmons pitched well in relief, going 1.1 scoreless innings.  He came in with a bases loaded situation with 2 outs in the 4th and recorded the final out on a fly ball to right.  He pitched a perfect 5th with a strikeout.

The Scorpions are back in action tonight at 6:35 MST.

Dominican Winter League

There was only one game yesterday in the DWL and only one Brave saw action.

  • Juan Cedeno – 0.1 IP, HOLD

Quite an eventful day for the Braves in the DWL as no hitters played and one pitcher recorded one out.  But hey, at least he retired the one hitter he faced and got a HOLD!

Check back with us Monday for all the AFL and DWL updates from the weekend games.
