Hey there folks, glad you could join me for another edition of the Minor League Ball Gameday. We had a number of excellent performances last night from RHP Ross Stripling's 7.1 no hit innings to SS Trevor Story setting another record for most home runs to start a career. RHP Phil Bickford mowed down 10 batters in just 4.2 innings of work, DH Tyler White was 3-4 with another homer, C Jorge Alfaro tallied four base knocks including a double, and SS Christian Arroyo had a four hit game as well.
