FALL INSTRUCTS: O’Halloran deals, juniors fall to Braves

October 4, 2018


LAKE BUENA VISTA, Florida – The Atlanta Braves’ Fall Instructional League club used 16 hits and limited the Junior National Team to just three to score a 10-0 decision this afternoon at Champions Stadium on the grounds of ESPN Wide World of Sports.

Making his Junior National Team debut, left-handed pitcher Connor O’Halloran (Etobicoke, ON) put up zeroes over three innings of work that included three strikeouts while Dasan Brown (Oakville, ON) had a single and stolen base.

Box Score

SCORING

-An error and bases loaded walk issued by starting pitcher Theo Millas (Burnaby, BC) gave the Braves a 2-0 lead after one inning and they went on to add another run in the second coming on an RBI single to centre.

-A double and single in the third gave them a 4-0 lead while ending Millas’ three-inning outing.

-Evan O’Toole (Bridgewater, NS) took the mound in the seventh and allowed a lead off triple and single to score one run before a base hit and hit-by-pitch with the bases loaded counted two more runs for the Braves.

-The Braves would go on to add a pair of runs in the eighth to round out their scoring.

QUICK HITS

-O’Halloran worked his way out of trouble in the fourth getting a pair of strikeouts after allowing back-to-back, one-out doubles. He faced just seven batters over the next two frames including a perfect inning to end the sixth.

-Dasan Brown led off with a single in the eighth and promptly stole second base but was left stranded.

-Owen Diodati (Niagara Falls, ON) and Eric Martin (Kitchener, ON) each had singles while Micah McDowell (Coldbrook, NS) added a stolen base.
