The Peoria Chiefs also lost to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Tuesday, putting the Bandits magic number to clinch the division at four with 12 remaining in the regular season.

A passed ball allowed Josh Rojas to score in the seventh to break the tie and give the River Bandits (38-20, 75-51) their first lead of the game. Wander Franco then singled home another run before Abraham Toro homered for the second straight day to add to the lead in the eighth. Quad Cities tied the game in the fourth inning on a Rojas single that brought Troy Sieber home from second. Beloit (27-30, 59-66) scored the game’s first run on an RBI single by Jesus Lopez in the second.

Montanto (7-3) kept the game tied in the sixth, entering the game with two outs and the bases loaded and getting a strikeout to strand the inherited runners. Montano would strike out seven over 3.1 scoreless innings, allowing two weak singles without walking a batter. Carlos Sanabria went 5.2 innings in his start for the Bandits, allowing one run on six hits while striking out eight and walking two. Sam Sheehan (3-2) allowed three runs in 1.2 innings of relief to take the loss for Beloit.

Matt Hall

 

Lakeland, FL – Lakeland Flying Tigers starting pitcher Matt Hall has been named Florida State League (FSL) Player of the Month for June by Minor League Baseball.

 

Hall did not allow an earned run in 25.2 innings in June, as he held opponents to a .169 average and walked just six while striking out 31. Hall was 3-0 in June and allowed only 15 hits during his four outings, with just three of the hits going for extra bases (two doubles and a homer).

 

Hall’s best start came on June 28 against the Daytona Tortugas at Radiology Associates Field at Jackie Robinson Ballpark in Daytona.  He earned the victory after retiring the first 23 batters he faced and not allowing a baserunner until a single with two outs in the bottom of the 8th inning broke up the perfect game.  Hall ended up firing 8.1 shutout innings while allowing only two hits and striking out eleven batters.

 

This is Hall’s third professional season.  He was selected by the Detroit Tigers in the sixth round of the June 2015 draft.  Hall, 23, currently ranks as the #17 prospect in the Tigers organization by MLB.com.
