Cito “Cheeto” Culver: 1/3, K, CS (9) (.227) 11 for his last 36 (.306). He’s really come a long way since the beginnign of the season, which is the point of Low-A.

Cesar Vargas: 3 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 K, HR (3.34 ERA) The pitching had a rough day today, mostly due to errors, but this is one of the strongest pitching classes the GCL has ever seen.

All the rest are TBD
