Batavia fell to the Tri-City ValleyCats 7-5.Gabriel Castellanos struggled, allowing five earned runs in five innings of work. Mason Davis had a big day for the Muckdogs, tallying four hits including a double. The four hit explosion raised his average to .326 in his brief professional career. Davis may have been only a 19th round pick, but he is a player that intrigues me for some reason. He is certainly a guy I will keep my eye on.
